Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL), Cabela’s Inc. (CAB) & More: Here’s Why These Stocks Are on the Move Today

The US stock market is trading slightly lower on Monday after a brief rally on Friday and following news that the UK plans to trigger Article 50 of the EU Treaty by the end of March 2017.

Meanwhile, a number of stocks are in the spotlight today, including Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Cabela’s Inc. (NYSE:CAB), Transocean Ltd. (NYSE:RIG), Suncor Energy Inc. (NYSE:SU), and Winnebago Industries Inc. (NYSE:WGO). Let’s take a closer look at the latest news involving these companies and assess the hedge fund sentiment towards them.

An everyday investor doesn’t have the same resources and capabilities to analyze different publicly-traded companies as hedge funds do. This is why it is a good idea to see what stocks hedge funds like the most and try to imitate some of their bullish moves in an attempt to reap market-beating returns. At Insider Monkey, we follow the activity of several hundred of the best-performing hedge funds as part of our strategy. We analyze their 13F filings and use the data to see what stocks they are collectively bullish on. Through extensive research we have determined that the best approach to outperform the broader indices is to follow hedge funds into their top small-cap ideas. In our backtests, a portfolio of the 15 most popular small-cap stocks generated monthly alpha of 81 basis points, versus 0.7 percentage points posted by hedge funds’ top large- and mega-cap picks (see more details here).
