What Do Hedge Funds Think of JG Wentworth Co (JGW)?

Investing in hedge funds can bring large profits, but it’s not for everybody, since hedge funds are available only for high-net-worth individuals. They generate significant returns for investors to justify their large fees and they allocate a lot of time and employ a complex analysis to determine the best stocks to invest in. A particularly interesting group of stocks that hedge funds like is the small-caps. The huge amount of capital does not allow hedge funds to invest a lot in small-caps, but our research showed that their most popular small-cap ideas are less efficiently priced and generate stronger returns than their large- and mega-cap picks and the broader market. That is why we follow the hedge fund activity in the small-cap space.

JG Wentworth Co (NYSE:JGW) shareholders have witnessed a decrease in hedge fund sentiment in recent months. At the end of this article we will also compare JGW to other stocks including API Technologies Corp (NASDAQ:ATNY), Performant Financial Corp (NASDAQ:PFMT), and DryShips Inc.
