Investors Are Buying Up These 5 Stocks Today

Page 1 of 2

U.S stocks are advancing vigorously today, spurred by stellar jobs data out of the country, which showed the largest monthly gain in the last eight months. The Dow Jones is up by approximately 200 points or 1.07%, while the S&P 500 has risen by 1.24%, with financial stocks acting as the locomotive.

Although gun and security stocks are holding the spotlight today after the Dallas shootings, there are other stocks that are surging as well. Let’s take a look at some of them and see what the hedge funds in our database think about each of them.

We believe that imitating hedge funds and other large institutional investors can be helpful in identifying stocks capable of outperforming the broader market. Through extensive research that covered portfolios of several hundred large investors between 1999 and 2012, we determined that following the small-cap stocks that large money managers are collectively bullish on, can generate monthly returns nearly 1.0 percentage points above the market (see more details here).

Security Stocks Are Surging

TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ:TASR) shares are up by nearly 7% today as a reaction to the Dallas shooting. This also seems to be the reason behind Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ:DGLY)‘s rally, which is currently up by 52% from yesterday’s closing price. Digital Ally, Inc. (NASDAQ:DGLY) manufactures and sells audio and video systems and storage for law enforcement and commercial applications.

TASER International, Inc. (NASDAQ:TASR) meanwhile was recently upgraded by analysts at CL King. In a note to investors, the stock was awarded a ‘Buy’ rating, up from the previous ‘Neutral’ rating and given a price target of $32 per share. TASER manufactures and sells stun guns and body-worn cameras for law enforcement, and has a dominant position in both markets according to the firm’s research. CL King also pointed to the fact that the company has little exposure to foreign markets, thus giving it great growth potential. The firm also predicts “accelerating earnings growth and margin expansion going forward.” The Dallas shooting has helped push the stock higher, as investors expect an increase in demand for law enforcement equipment.
