At Insider Monkey, we track hedge funds’ moves in order to identify actionable patterns and profit from them. Our research has shown that hedge funds’ large-cap stock picks historically underperformed the S&P 500 Total Return Index by an average of seven basis points per month between 1999 and 2012. On the other hand, the 15 most popular small-cap stocks among hedge funds outperformed the S&P 500 Index by an average of 95 basis points per month (read the details here). Since the official launch of our small-cap strategy in August 2012, it has performed just as predicted, returning 102% and beating the market by more than 53 percentage points. We believe the data is clear: investors will be better off by focusing on small-cap stocks utilizing hedge fund expertise (while avoiding their high fees at the same time) rather than large-cap stocks.

KaloBios Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:KBIO) shares have skyrocketed today after news emerged that the notorious Martin Shkreli, Chief Executive Officer of Turing Pharmaceuticals, purchased 1.2 million shares of the company. This comes as a surprise, as KaloBios was set to wind down its operations; now, the stock has soared by more than 450% in trading today. The company announced on Friday that it would stop its research of two blood cancer drugs that it was working on. Now, management has received a proposal to continue operations and is reportedly willing to sit at the negotiating table.
