What Do Hedge Funds Think of Broadcom Corporation (BRCM)?

At Insider Monkey we track the activity of some of the best-performing hedge funds like Appaloosa Management, Baupost, and Third Point because we determined that some of the stocks that they are collectively bullish on can help us generate returns above the broader indices. Out of thousands of stocks that hedge funds invest in, small-caps can provide the best returns over the long term due to the fact that these companies are less efficiently priced and are usually under the radars of mass-media, analysts and dumb money. This is why we follow the smart money moves in the small-cap space.

Broadcom Corporation (NASDAQ:BRCM) has seen a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money recently. BRCM was in 67 hedge funds’ portfolios at the end of September. There were 79 hedge funds in our database with BRCM positions at the end of the previous quarter. At the end of this article we will also compare BRCM to other stocks including Travelers Companies Inc (NYSE:TRV), Brookfield Asset Management Inc. (NYSE:BAM), and Sony Corporation (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) to get a better sense of its popularity.
