Goldman's 50 most-loved hedge fund stocks


Google (GOOG), Apple (AAPL), GM, and AIG retain their top rankings in Goldman's quarterly list of most popular hedge fund holdings, but maybe some of the smaller capitalization stocks on the list is where the real alpha lies.

Of the 777 hedge funds surveyed, 25 have stakes in NorthStar Realty Finance (NRF), putting it at #16 on the list, 20 are owners of American Realty Capital (ARCP), and 18 hold Assured Guaranty (AGO).

    Even Hedge Funds make dumb mistakes from time to time. They're not all in the top 1%

    the Common Stock issuance is over-subscribed in one day, the Under Writers seldom take shares in anything but to a discounted valuation.

    It is funny how everyone loves to buy the hedge funds top picks, yet the hedge funds lag the S&P.

    when you say ' funny ' do you mean like .. Amusing ? .. or as in Strange ? It is Strange more people don't buy the S&P during Up Markets,. but do try to pick stocks and beat it, but seldom Win.
    But now that the Market is moving sideways and they should look at sectors, they jump on the S&P ? But we're not talking about the same thing here, are we.

     

    Hedge Funds support stocks like ARCP, building new Companies & Buy out the entire float which supports the shares - Good for that individual Investor and Enterprise.
    So why do (some people) w no interest at all think it's ' Amusing ' when other Investors loose Money ? on a subscription failure ? .. that seems Strange.

    He meant it as 'weird' or 'strange', or perhaps even 'ironic'.
