Page 1 of 2

The S&P 500 and other indexes plunged on Wednesday afternoon dragged by a weaker dollar, as investors are shifting their attention to the Fed after concerns over a Brexit faded slightly.

Among the stocks trending today are Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS), United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL), E I Du Pont De Nemours And Co (NYSE:DD), Priceline Group Inc (NASDAQ:PCLN), and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB). Let’s analyze why each stock is in the spotlight and see what investors tracked by us think about them.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 730 hedge funds and institutional investors. Through extensive backtests, we have determined that imitating some of the stocks that these investors are collectively bullish on, can help retail investors generate double digits of alpha per year. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these funds, which are usually less followed by the broader market and allow for larger price inefficiencies (see the details here).
