Entergy Corporation (ETR) vs. Hedge Fund Favorites in 2019

ETR

Our calculations also showed that ETR isn't among the 30 most popular stocks among hedge funds (click for Q3 rankings and see the video at the end of this article for Q2 rankings). Our research has shown that hedge funds' small-cap stock picks managed to beat the market by double digits annually between 1999 and 2016, but the margin of outperformance has been declining in recent years. With all of this in mind we're going to review the recent hedge fund action regarding Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR). What have hedge funds been doing with Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR)? Covalis Capital is also relatively very bullish on the stock, earmarking 5.24 percent of its 13F equity portfolio to ETR. Because Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR) has experienced falling interest from hedge fund managers, it's easy to see that there was a specific group of hedge funds who were dropping their entire stakes by the end of the third quarter.

Entergy Utility Customers Realize Significant Benefits After 5 Years as MISO Member

ETR

NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Customers have saved approximately $1.3 billion on electric bills since the utility subsidiaries of Entergy Corporation (NYSE: ETR) became members of Midcontinent Independent System Operator, a regional transmission organization. By sharing in that large pool, Entergy can maintain reliability with less power generation capacity than if it were on its own – and pass the resulting savings along to customers. In addition, because MISO dispatches a large pool of generation to serve the needs of all customers in its footprint, the dispatch is more efficient, resulting in a lower delivered cost of energy and long-term benefits for customers. It has also helped us control costs and keep our rates among the lowest in the nation. Since joining MISO five years ago, Entergy customers have saved an average of $261 million per year.

Is Entergy Corporation (ETR) A Good Stock To Buy?

ETR

Unlike the largest US hedge funds that are convinced Dow will soar past 40,000 or the world's most bearish hedge fund that's more convinced than ever that a crash is coming, our long-short investment strategy doesn't rely on bull or bear markets to deliver double digit returns. We're going to take a gander at the key hedge fund action regarding Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR). What does smart money think about Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR)? Covalis Capital is also relatively very bullish on the stock, setting aside 5.24 percent of its 13F equity portfolio to ETR. Since Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR) has faced falling interest from the smart money, logic holds that there was a specific group of funds that decided to sell off their entire stakes last quarter. Unfortunately ETR wasn't nearly as popular as these 20 stocks (hedge fund sentiment was very bearish); ETR investors were disappointed as the stock returned 0% during the fourth quarter (through the end of November) and underperformed the market. If you are interested in investing in large cap stocks with huge upside potential, you should check out the top 20 most popular stocks among hedge funds as 70 percent of these stocks already outperformed the market so far in Q4.
