What’s the Deal With These Five Stocks Trading in Red on Tuesday?

Page 1 of 2

The Dow Jones index is flat and the S&P 500 and NASDAQ index are modestly in the red, amid reports that the International Monetary Fund cut its global growth outlook for the next two years on the back of Brexit-related uncertainty in the European Union. The IMF now forecasts a global growth of 3.1% this year and 3.4% in 2017, both figures having been cut by 0.1 percentage points.

Meanwhile, five companies, SciClone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ:SCLN), Ryerson Holding Corp (NYSE:RYI), Skypeople Fruit Juice Inc (NASDAQ:SPU), Ballard Power Systems Inc. (USA) (NASDAQ:BLDP), and Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) are registering declines significantly below the market. In this article, we analyze why traders are selling and see what the funds that we track at Insider Monkey think about the companies in question.

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 the details here).
