The Global X Guru ETF, the Global X Guru Activist ETF and the AlphaClone Alternative Alpha ETF are all suitable vehicles for investors wanting to mimic the top hedge fund stock buying trend in Q1 2015, according S&P Capital IQ.
The company produces a Trends & Ideas research note linked to its Quarterly Hedge Fund Tracker which, for Q1 2015, reveals that healthcare stocks have driven the lion’s share of buying among pure play hedge fund managers in the first three months of the year with net buys of USD4.8 billion.
All three of the aforementioned ETFs are weighted towards stocks named in the Q1 Hedge Fund Tracker.
"While it would not be realistic to try to mimic hedge fund strategies, it is possible for individual investors to access the same trends these hedge fund managers are watching through ETFs," says Todd Rosenbluth, S&P Capital IQ Director of ETF Research. "The allure of following a 'smart money' strategy is not lost on ETF managers who have created many options for tracking hedge fund-like strategies."
