Facebook Inc (FB), Netflix, Inc. (NFLX), & More: Here’s Why Investors Are Buzzing about These Stocks

All three indexes and crude futures are lower today as investors remain uncertain on the future direction of the market. On one hand, various members of the Fed have given conflicting views on the timing of interest rate hikes in the near term. On the other hand, the U.S. economy is strong, but global macro risks abound.

In this article, we take a closer look at why five stocks, General Motors Company (NYSE:GM), Tiffany & Co. (NYSE:TIF), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX), Boeing Co (NYSE:BA), and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), are in the spotlight today. We will also see how the smart money investors from our database traded the stocks during the second quarter.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 750 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 the details here).
