Today’s Trending Stocks: Time Warner Inc, Sinclair Broadcast, Zoetis, and 2 More

Page 1 of 2

Although today’s major economic release was largely in-line with estimates, as July ADP private payrolls rose by 179,000, all three indexes are slightly lower as traders take profits on the run-up since the Brexit decision in late-June.

In this article, we’ll examine the latest earnings results and other news out of Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc (NASDAQ:SBGI), Zoetis Inc (NYSE:ZTS), Humana Inc (NYSE:HUM), and Newfield Exploration Co. (NYSE:NFX). In addition, we’ll use SEC filings to determine how hedge funds have been trading these stocks.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 765 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).
