Here’s Why Traders are Talking about These Five Stocks

The market is mixed on Thursday with Dow Jones and S&P 500 slightly in red, while NASDAQ has inched up since the opening bell as companies continue to turn in their financial reports.

In this way, shares of Bank of New York Mellon Corp (NYSE:BK), Adeptus Health Inc (NYSE:ADPT), Nucor Corporation (NYSE:NUE), Domino’s Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ), and Quest Diagnostics Inc (NYSE:DGX) are trending today after reporting their financial results for the last quarter. In this earnings-heavy edition of market trenders, let’s take a closer look at each stock and use SEC filings to see how the world’s greatest investors are positioned among them.

While there are many metrics that investors can assess in the investment process, the hedge fund sentiment is something that is often overlooked. However, hedge funds and other institutional investors allocate significant resources while making their bets and their long-term focus makes them the perfect investors to emulate. This is supported by our research, which determined that following the small-cap stocks that hedge funds are collectively bullish on can help a smaller investor to beat the S&P 500 by around 95 basis points per month (see the details here).
