|By:, SA News Editor

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).
