Hedge Fund Favorites: Corning

Wednesday, 16 Apr 2008 | 6:22 PM ET

Many investors have been shying away from Corning stock amid fears of a consumer-led recession, but not the hedge funds. What is the fast money on the Street seeing, that you're not?

First, Corning is winning the flat panel wars as LCD TVs are outselling plasma sets by a five to one margin, explains Guy Adami.

Second, Corning is a falling dollar play. Their components get cheaper for Sony each time the greenback drops.

And lastly, it's a little known green trade. Corning is experiencing booming sales of its emission control devices for autos.

There are other reasons too, but in a nutshell that’s why Corning is a hedge fund favorite, Guy Adami concludes.

From a technical standpoint I think he’s right, adds Carter Worth. The GLW chart looks great.
