Page 1 of 2

The US stock market is trading lower on the last day of the trading week amid a falling dollar and after retail data showed flat growth in July, compared to an anticipated 0.4% increase.

Among the stocks gaining ground on Friday are Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE:JWN), Acacia Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:ACIA), Silicon Graphics International Corp (NASDAQ:SGI), Delek US Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:DK), SunRun Inc (NASDAQ:RUN). In this article, we are going to take a look at the news that sent these stocks higher today and assess the hedge fund sentiment towards them.

While there are many metrics that investors can assess in the investment process, hedge fund sentiment is something that is often overlooked. However, hedge funds and other institutional investors allocate significant resources while making their bets and their long-term focus makes them the perfect investors to emulate. This is supported by our research, which determined that following the small-cap stocks that hedge funds are collectively bullish on can help a smaller investor beat the S&P 500 by around 95 basis points per month (see more details here).
