    It’s a little late, but I felt it was necessary to share some important aspects (thanks to Market Folly) from the Goldman Sachs “Hedge Fund Trend Monitor” released on February 22, 2010. It is a compilation of analysis for 627 hedge funds with a fundamental strategy. Below is a listing of the Ten Stocks That Most Frequently Appear In Hedge Funds’ Top Holdings & the Top Ten Stocks Added Most By Hedge Funds. Why is this important? Hedge fund returns are largely dependant on the performance of just a few holdings. These holdings are usually their top holdings.
