Institutional Buying

Because institutional investors handle such large amounts of money, it is easy enough to assume that they know what they’re doing — or at the very least know more than the average investor. This is why these investors are also sometimes referred to as “smart money.”

If institutional investors start investing in a company, regular investors can assume that some of the most talented analysts and money managers expect the company’s share prices to increase over time. The stocks on our list are experiencing significant investment from big money.

Significantly Undervalued to EPS Trends

We compared price trends to changes in EPS estimates over the last month.

Based on the assumption that P/E is equal to a constant k, increases in EPS should be matched by increases in price. When they don’t match up, a mispricing may have occurred.

We screened for stocks with faster growth in EPS estimates than price over the last month, which may indicate that these names are being undervalued. (A more comprehensive explanation can be found in this post.)

Here’s the result of our screen. Look at the data below; Could a mispricing lead to positive upside for these names?
