Page 1 of 2

Stocks are trading in the green on Thursday as markets continue to steadily recover from the Brexit-triggered wild swings. However, investors remain selective as the future of the global economy is still dotted with uncertainties after UK’s exit from the European Union.

Meanwhile, some stocks are worth watching closely today, including TESARO Inc (NASDAQ:TSRO), Stellar Biotechnologies Inc (NASDAQ:SBOT), Ampio Pharmaceuticals Inc (NYSEMKT:AMPE), Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. (USA) (NYSE:LGF), and Starz (NASDAQ:STRZA). Let’s find out why these stocks are in the spotlight today and analyze the hedge fund sentiment towards them.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 770 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 more details about our small-cap strategy).
