Here’s Why These Five Stocks Are on the Move on Wednesday

The latest crude inventory numbers are in, and according to the EIA, crude inventories fell 2.3 million barrels in the previous week. Not surprisingly, crude futures have ripped higher by around 1% to $45.88 per barrel, and all three indexes are also higher in afternoon trade.

In this article, we take a closer look at five stocks that are on the move, Skypeople Fruit Juice Inc (NASDAQ:SPU), Medidata Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:MDSO), Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ:CTAS), First Majestic Silver Corp (NYSE:AG), and Endeavour Silver Corp (NYSE:EXK), and we find out what the smart money thinks of each stock.

At Insider Monkey, we track around 770 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).

Momentum Traders Going to Momo  

Everybody’s favorite momentum stock, Skypeople Fruit Juice Inc (NASDAQ:SPU) is up by 35% today on no fundamental news. Given the small float (with just 2.21 million shares available to be traded), and the stock’s recent price action (rising substantially from the beginning of July), some technical traders are no doubt buying based on momentum rather than the fundamentals. As we wrote about earlier, Skypeople recently made a statement that online reports from the Chinese website that Future World Group had successfully gained a listing on NASDAQ by acquiring SkyPeople is inaccurate. For those interested, this link contains the actual details related to Future World. None of the funds that we track owned shares of Skypeople Fruit Juice Inc (NASDAQ:SPU) at the end of March. As with all nano-caps, traders should do due-diligence before buying or selling.
