You probably know from experience that there is not as much information on small-cap companies as there is on large companies. Of course, this makes it really hard and difficult for individual investors to make proper and accurate analysis of certain small-cap companies. However, well-known and successful hedge fund investors like Carl Icahn and George Soros hold the necessary resources and abilities to conduct an extensive stock analysis on small-cap stocks, which enable them to make millions of dollars by identifying potential winners within the small-cap galaxy of stocks. This represents the main reason why Insider Monkey takes notice of the hedge fund activity in these overlooked stocks.

That’s why at the end of this article we will examine companies such as Inovalon Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:INOV), CoreSite Realty Corp (NYSE:COR), and FireEye Inc (NASDAQ:FEYE) to gather more data points.
