These 5 Healthcare Penny Stocks Are Poised To Jump

Penny stocks are a risky investment, as many such companies have a product or products that are a long way from generating revenues (if they’re ever able to at all). However, if an investor can pick out the right candidate among these penny stocks, the future returns can be substantial. In order to increase these odds, we have decided to share five penny stocks from the healthcare sector that are the most popular among the hedge funds from our database, which implies that these money managers have rigorously researched these companies before assigning them a place in their equity portfolios. You can be sure that when these elite investors are collectively taking stakes in such obscure stocks, there is something noteworthy happening with those companies.

We track hedge funds and prominent investors because our research has shown that historically their stock picks delivered superior risk-adjusted returns. This is especially true in the small-cap space. The 50 most popular large-cap stocks among hedge funds had a monthly alpha of about six basis points per month between 1999 and 2012; however the 15 most popular small-cap stocks delivered a monthly alpha of 80 basis points during the same period. This means investors would have generated ten percentage points of alpha per year simply by imitating hedge funds’ top 15 small-cap ideas. We have been tracking the performance of these stocks since the end of August 2012 in real time and these stocks beat the market by over 60 percentage points (118% return vs. the S&P 500’s 57.6% gain) over the last 36 months (see the details here).
