Why CarMax, Teva Pharmaceuticals And Three Other Stocks Are in Spotlight on Tuesday

Crude prices are 1.5% lower today as traders are taking profits on yesterday’s run-up. Although most investors expect Britain to remain in the EU following Thursday’s referendum, the event isn’t guaranteed yet and the markets could remain volatile if polls show the ‘exit’ side gaining strength.

In this article, we take a closer look at why CarMax, Inc (NYSE:KMX), International Game Technology Ordinary Shares (NYSE:IGT), Impax Laboratories Inc (NASDAQ:IPXL), Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:TEVA), and Royal Bank of Scotland Group PLC (NYSE:RBS) are trending and see how the funds from our database are positioned towards them.

Hedge fund sentiment is an important metric for assessing the long-term profitability. At Insider Monkey, we track over 700 hedge funds, whose quarterly 13F filings we analyze and determine their collective sentiment towards several thousand stocks. However, our research has shown that the best strategy is to follow hedge funds into their small-cap picks. This approach can allow monthly returns of nearly 95 basis points above the market, as we determined through extensive backtests covering the period between 1999 and 2012 (see the details here).

CarMax Reports Earnings

CarMax, Inc (NYSE:KMX) earned $0.90 per share on revenue of $4.13 billion for its fiscal first quarter, missing the consensus estimates by $0.02 per share and $60 million, respectively. Although used vehicle unit sales rose by 4% year-over-year, they only increased by 0.2% on a comparable-store basis. CarMax Auto Finance income declined by 7.7% year-over-year to $100.8 million, mainly due to an increase in the provision for loan losses and a lower total interest margin percentage. In terms of guidance, CarMax anticipates opening 15 stores in fiscal 2017 and between 13 to 16 stores in fiscal 2018. A total of 17 funds from our database owned shares of CarMax, Inc (NYSE:KMX) at the end of March.
