Xerox Corporation (XRX), On Assignment, Inc. (ASGN) & More: Why You Should Take a Closer Look at These Stocks

Hedge funds’ reputation has been impaired mostly due to high fees and the underperformance on the short-side of their portfolios, which provide downside protection but have dragged down overall returns. We recommend investors consider hedge funds’ long stock picks for their market-beating potential. 659 funds in our system which filed for the June 30 13F reporting period held long positions in at least five non-micro-cap stocks, and those funds’ long bets posted 8.3% gains in the third-quarter based on the size of their positions on June 30. That easily topped the performance of S&P 500 ETFs, which returned only 3.3% in the same period.

One of the funds that we follow at Insider Monkey is Tensile Capitalmanaged by Douglas Dossey and Arthur Young. The fund reported an equity portfolio worth $443.52 million as of the end of September, with almost half invested in tech stocks. According to our calculations, out of the fund’s total long positions, 13 holdings in companies with market caps above $1.0 billion posted a weighted average return of 12.35% in the third quarter. In this article we will take a look at the fund’s exposure to Expeditors International of Washington (NASDAQ:EXPD), On Assignment, Inc. (NYSE:ASGN), InterXion Holding NV (NYSE:INXN), and Xerox Corporation (NYSE:XRX).
