WisdomTree Investments Stock Drop

In this edition of The Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Brendan Mathews take a question from a reader who asks, "What is up with WisdomTree Investments (NASDAQ: WETF  ) ?"

WisdomTree Investments stock has pulled back strongly and, as Brendan explains, it's a function of slowing assets under management (AUM), weakness in emerging markets products, and fear about the sustainability of the hedged Japanese equity ETF. Those factors have created pessimism in the stock, but Jason thinks the market is too focused on the short term. Brendan agrees, and he thinks that now could be a great time for long-term investors to initiate a position in the stock.

Warren Buffett just bought nearly 9 million shares of this company
Imagine a company that rents a very specific and valuable piece of machinery for $41,000... per hour. (That's almost as much as the average American makes in a year!) And Warren Buffett is so confident in this company's can't-live-without-it business model, he just loaded up on 8.8 million shares. An exclusive, brand-new Motley Fool report details this company that already has over 50% market share. Just click HERE to discover more about this industry-leading stock... and join Buffett in his quest for a veritable landslide of profits!

    Okay for those of us who dont mind paying STCG tax because we like to turn stocks over ever few weeks rather than every few months/ years, mainly for the immediate production of income. We dont see WETF as a value. Mainly because it has been in selloff for the past five months. Anybody havean idea when it will begin to reverse this trend? Second question, how does this stock rate as a short sell candidate?

    distantfire: Since Brendan has a position in the stock, it would not serve him well to recommend anyone shorting the stock, If you look at the chart you can see that it would have been a great move to have done so before it dropped 40%! I think it will go sideways for awhile. I have no position in the stock.
