4 Stocks Heading Into Thanksgiving On A High Note

Bon-Ton Stores Inc. (NASDAQ:BONT), Straight Path Communications Inc. (NYSEMKT:STRP), Genetic Technologies Limited (NASDAQ:GENE) and Guess’ Inc. (NYSE:GES) are trading in positive territory as trading winds down this afternoon with the Thanksgiving holiday looming tomorrow. We’ll take a closer look at the news behind the strong performance of these stocks today and see how the funds from our database have been trading them of late.

Let’s first take a step back and analyze how tracking hedge funds can help an everyday investor. Through our research we discovered that a portfolio of the 15 most popular small-cap picks of hedge funds beat the S&P 500 Total Return Index by nearly a percentage point per month on average between 1999 and 2012. On the other hand the most popular large-cap picks of hedge funds underperformed the same index by seven basis points per month during the same period. This is likely a surprise to many investors, who think of small-caps as risky, unpredictable stocks and put more faith (and money) in large-cap stocks. In forward tests since August 2012 these top small-cap stocks beat the market by an impressive 53 percentage points, returning 102% (read the details here).
