According to the filing, Buckingham Capital acquired 80,000 shares of UCP Inc (NYSE:UCP) at $7.22 per share for an aggregate price of $577,600, bringing its ownership up to 1.03 million shares, a greater than 15% stake in the homebuilder and land developer, which has a market cap of $57.35 million.


In addition to tracking the latest moves of hedge funds, we also focus on their 13F filings to determine the top 15 small-cap stocks. We gather and share this information based on 16 years of research which showed that these 15 most popular small-cap picks have a great potential to outperform the market, beating the S&P 500 Total Return Index by nearly one percentage point per month in backtests, and easily beating the most popular large-cap picks of funds, which nonetheless get the majority of their collective capital. Why pay fees to invest in both the best and worst ideas of a particular hedge fund when you can simply mimic only the very best ideas of the best fund managers on your own? Since the beginning of forward testing in August 2012, the Insider Monkey small-cap strategy has outperformed the market every year, returning 142%, nearly 2.5 times greater returns than the S&P 500 during the same period (see more details).
