What Hedge Funds Think About Quest Resource Holding Corp (QRHC)

It is already common knowledge that individual investors do not usually have the necessary resources and abilities to properly research an investment opportunity. As a result, most investors pick their illusory “winners” by making a superficial analysis and research that leads to poor performance on aggregate. The Standard and Poor’s 500 Index returned 5.2% over the 12-month period ending October 30, while more than 51% of the constituents of the index underperformed the benchmark. Hence, a random stock picking process will most likely lead to disappointment. At the same time, the 30 most favored S&P 500 stocks by the hedge funds monitored by Insider Monkey (as of September 2014) generated a return of 9.5% over the same time span, with 63% of these stocks outperforming the benchmark. Of course, hedge funds do make wrong bets on some occasions and these get disproportionately publicized in the financial media, but piggybacking their moves can beat the broader market on average. That’s why we are going to go over recent hedge fund activity in Quest Resource Holding Corp (NASDAQ:QRHC).

Hedge fund interest in Quest Resource Holding Corp (NASDAQ:QRHC) shares was flat at the end of the last quarter. Since the stock has lost 44% since the beginning of the year, it could be the case that investors are holding their positions betting on the stock to grow in the long-term. The level and the change in hedge fund popularity aren’t the only variables you need to analyze to decipher hedge funds’ perspectives. A stock may witness a boost in popularity, but it may still be less popular than similarly priced stocks. That’s why at the end of this article we will examine companies such as ReachLocal Inc. (NASDAQ:RLOC), Sunesis Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNSS), and, Inc. (NASDAQ:SPRT) to gather more data points.
