  • Hedge Funds Love Advance Auto (AAP), Starbucks (SBUX) And More 0 comments
    Mar 18, 2013 9:51 PM | about stocks: WMB, AAP, VRX, SBUX, ABX

    Be sure to check out our detailed stock analysis (click here). After reviewing the hedge fund filings for last quarter, there are five stocks that stood out as being loved by hedge funds. The hedge fund activity in these five stocks were flagged as "unusual" in the sense that they saw a number of major investors that have to disclose their holdings to the SEC quarterly upping their stakes in the company. A few are "under the radar" picks and lesser known to conventional investors, but worth checking out.

    Williams Companies, Inc. (NYSE: WMB) is an energy infrastructure company in North America focused on natural gas and natural gas liquids. There are five hedge funds and major investors with Williams in its top ten (as measured by portfolio weighting). There were also twenty investors increasing there positions last quarter. The top hedge fund owner is Viking Global, who has 4.6% of its portfolio invested in the company. Also, the second and third hedge fund owners, Senator Investment and Corvex Capital, increased their stakes by over 150% each during the fourth quarter (see all the hedge funds owning Williams).
