Can Anything Slow Down These Five Stocks?

Global markets are trading in the negative territory today and the stocks in the US are no exception.

Nevertheless, there are some stocks which have been showing strong momentum this week, including Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW), FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX), Microsemi Corporation (NASDAQ:MSCC), Visa Inc. (NYSE:V), and Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO). Let’s take a look at the news that have driven these stocks to their 52-weeks highs this week and assess the smart money sentiment towards them.

We determine hedge fund sentiment by analyzing the equity portfolios of some of the best-performing hedge funds and institutional investors. Through extensive research, we have determined that the due diligence that these investors employ, as well as their long-term focus makes them perfect targets to emulate. However, the results of our analysis have also showed that the small-cap picks of these funds can generate much better returns, with the 15 most popular small-cap stocks beating the market by an average of 95 basis points per month (see more details here).
