Page 1 of 2

All three indexes are in the green today as traders await today’s FOMC meeting announcement at 2:00 and the Fed Chair Press conference at 2:30 eastern time. The Dow is up by around 40 points, the S&P 500 is 0.25% in the green and the NASDAQ is almost 16 points higher. Among the stocks showing more volatility than the indexes are Intellicheck Mobilisa, Inc. (NYSEMKT:IDN), EXACT Sciences Corporation (NASDAQ:EXAS), YY Inc (ADR) (NASDAQ:YY), Freeport-McMoRan Inc (NYSE:FCX), and J C Penney Company Inc (NYSE:JCP). Let’s find out why these stocks are on traders’ radars and see what smart money investors think about these stocks.

Through extensive research, we determined that imitating some of the picks of hedge funds and other institutional investors can help generate market-beating returns over the long run. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these investors, since they are usually less followed by the broader market and are less price-efficient. Our backtests that covered the period between 1999 and 2012, showed that following the 15 most popular small-caps among hedge funds can help a retail investor beat the market by an average of 95 basis points per month (see the details here).
