Why These Five Stocks Are Trading Higher Today

Page 1 of 2

U.S. markets continue to rebound on Wednesday, as investors rushed to buy the stocks that were beaten down by the Brexit. Not only are all three major stock indexes spiking today, but so are oil, gas, the Euro, Treasuries, and precious and industrial metals.

Among the individual stocks on the rise on Wednesday, we can count Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM), Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (USA) (NYSE:CP), Matador Resources Co (NYSE:MTDR), Shopify Inc (NYSE:SHOP) and CryoPort Inc (NASDAQ:CYRX). So, let’s take a look into the events behind the moves of these stocks, and see what the funds in our database 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 more details here).

Canadian Pacific To Lay Off Employees

According to the Wall Street Journal, the redundancies were triggered by a decline in the company’s profits and the expectation of a large tumble in revenue in the second quarter. Canadian Pacific Railway Limited (USA) (NYSE:CP) saw the number of hedge funds in our database long its stock surge by 24% to 36 during the first quarter. The largest stake was held by Bill Ackman’s Pershing Square, which last disclosed ownership of 13.94 million shares.
