Hedge Fund Tracker summary

Hospital stocks have soared 80% in the 11-months since SCOTUS. The most common question investors ask us is “who is buying the stocks”? Per most recent comprehensive filings (3/31/13), hedge fund ownership of hospitals is up 500bp yty (but only 20bp sequentially) to a 5-year high (27% of float), implying that mutual fund/ long-only ownership is inversely at 5-year lows. Share turnover increased sequentially, no doubt due to the negative preannouncements and weak 1Q13 results.
