Uber's stock struggled to pick up steam during the third quarter.

Shares fell 34% during the period, dropping more than 7% in a single day, after bottom-line losses of more than $1 billion overshadowed its third-quarter revenue beat.

The ride-hailing giant has had a difficult time finding its footing since entering the public markets in May as investors push back on money-losing business models. But that hasn't stopped hedge funds from standing pat with their positions. Some even piled more into the company's shares.

Hedge funds are required to disclose their ownership stakes in public companies on a quarterly basis through 13F filings.

Most of the firms included on the list below maintained the size of their stakes in Uber throughout the quarter. One fund added shares, but the value of the stake still fell because of the decline in the company's share price.

Here are some of the largest hedge funds that got stung by their stakes in Uber during the third quarter, ordered by increasing size of losses.
