Here’s Why Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (BMY), Telefonica Brasil SA (ADR) (VIV) and Three Other Stocks Plunged on Monday

Markets are trading on an optimistic note as all the major indices are in green zone. The major push for the markets comes from Hillary Clinton being seen as winner of the second presidential debate. European markets, on the other hand, remained week over the fears of a German bank crisis.

However, in the bullish market, a number of stocks have lost ground today, including Bristol-Myers Squibb Co (NYSE:BMY), Telefonica Brasil SA (ADR) (NYSE:VIV), Dover Corp (NYSE:DOV), Myriad Genetics Inc. (NASDAQ:MYGN), and Ocean Power Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ:OPTT). In this article, we are going to discuss the news that sent these stocks lower today and will analyze the hedge fund sentiment towards them.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 750 hedge funds and other 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 more details  about our small-cap strategy).
