Here’s Why Traders Are Buzzing about These Five Stocks

Page 1 of 2

Fading chances of a rate hike soothed the market sentiment on Wednesday. Some important stocks which are making headlines today, include Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO), Panera Bread Co (NASDAQ:PNRA), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), Vanda Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ:VNDA), and Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARNA). Let’s see why these stocks are on the move today and what the funds we track think about them.

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 more details here).

Vornado Realty Trust To Split Off Washington Business

Investors are watching Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO) closely today after the Wall Street Journal reported that the company is set to split off its Washington-area offices and apartments into a separate company. Last week, Vornado’s CEO Steven Roth said in an industry conference that the company would perform better if split off than combined. But Mr. Roth clarified that no decision about this “deconglomeration” has been made. The New York-based real estate company split off its strip-mall business into a separate retail company, Urban Edge Properties, in 2015. The source said that Vornado’s plan of simplification was started in order to heal its lagging stock price, which is still behind its major competitors. This would be a primary reason behind Vornado’s split off of its Washington business. Out of nearly 766 funds tracked by us, 22 hedge funds were long Vornado Realty Trust (NYSE:VNO) as of the end of the first quarter of 2016. Martin Whitman’s Third Avenue Management owns 772,214 shares of the company.
