It’s another quiet day on Wall Street as all three index futures are in the red, but very modestly so.

Among the stocks making more waves than the broader market are, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA), Chico’s FAS, Inc. (NYSE:CHS), Bob Evans Farms Inc (NASDAQ:BOBE), and Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL). Let’s take a closer look at each company and see how elite funds are positioned towards them.

We believe that imitating hedge funds and other large institutional investors can be helpful in identifying stocks capable of outperforming the broader market. Through extensive research that covered portfolios of several hundred large investors between 1999 and 2012, we determined that following the small-cap stocks that large money managers are collectively bullish on, can generate monthly returns nearly 1.0 percentage points above the market (see the details here).

Analyst Downgrade at Under Armour 

Analysts at Argus lowered their rating on Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA) to ‘Hold’ from ‘Buy’, stating the company will increasingly need large investments in the future to expand. The large investments could potentially weigh on Under Armour’s earnings growth and increase the company’s interest expense and debt. Due to those factors, the Argus analysts lowered their EPS for full year 2016 to $0.56 from $0.60. They have a $41.56 price target. Hedge funds were pretty bullish on Under Armour in the second quarter. The number of funds from our database with holdings in Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA) rose by 10 quarter-over-quarter to 31 at the end of June.
