A Closer Look at Five Stocks in Spotlight Following Financial Reports

The US stock market inched up higher on Tuesday and the S&P 500 and NASDAQ reached new intraday highs.

Five stocks are in the spotlight following the release of their latest financial results, including DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc (NYSE:DVA), Colony Financial Inc (NYSE:CLNY), Brookdale Senior Living, Inc. (NYSE:BKD), Callon Petroleum Company (NYSE:CPE), and Clovis Oncology Inc (NASDAQ:CLVS). Let’s take a closer look at how the companies in question performed last quarter and assess what the investors tracked by Insider Monkey think about the companies in question.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 770 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 more details about our small-cap strategy).
