Hedge Fund Managers Turn Bullish on U.S. Equities. According to Survey, 43% of Managers Bullish on S&P 500 while 27% Bearish.
New York, NY – August 1, 2011 – Hedge fund managers have turned bullish on U.S. equities, according to BarclayHedge and TrimTabs Investment Research. Bullish sentiment on the S&P 500 among hedge fund managers soared to 43% in July, the largest share since December 2010, from 27% in June. Bearish sentiment sank to 27%, the smallest share since January 2011, from 38%.
“This reversal is striking,” says Sol Waksman, founder and President of BarclayHedge. “Hedge fund managers were meaningfully bullish on domestic stocks in only one month in the first half of the year. Our research shows that hedge fund sentiment is a decent leading indicator, so the shift could help support stock prices in the near term.”
