Our overall hedge fund sentiment score for RVLV is 63. Stocks with higher number of hedge fund positions relative to other stocks, as well as relative to their historical range, receive a higher sentiment score. This is a slightly positive signal, but we’d rather spend our time researching stocks that hedge funds are piling on.

Our calculations showed that 5 most popular stocks among hedge funds returned 95.8% in 2019 and 2020, and outperformed the S&P 500 ETF (SPY) by 40 percentage points. These stocks gained 31.1% in 2021 through Dec. 9 and beat the market again by 5.1 percentage points.

Unfortunately, RVLV wasn’t nearly as popular as those stocks, and hedge funds that were betting on RVLV were disappointed as the stock returned 7.5% since the end of September (through Sept. 12) and underperformed the market.
