Why Investors Are Watching Dean Foods, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Halliburton, and More

It’s another quiet day on the Street as the main indexes are moderately in the green while the VIX is down 3% to trade below 15. Among the stocks that traders are watching are several tech companies, one oil service company, and two others.

In this article, let’s take a closer look at Dean Foods Co (NYSE:DF), Solaredge Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SEDG), QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM), Halliburton Company (NYSE:HAL), and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:REGN) and analyze why each stock is trending. Let’s also examine how the smart money investors from our database were positioned towards the stocks in question.

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).
