Through extensive research, we determined that imitating some of the picks of hedge funds and other institutional investors can help generate market-beating returns over the long run. The key is to focus on the small-cap picks of these investors, since they are usually less followed by the broader market and are less price-efficient. Our backtests that covered the period between 1999 and 2012, showed that following the 15 most popular small-caps among hedge funds can help a retail investor beat the market by an average of 95 basis points per month (see more details here).

Under Armour Cuts Its Estimates Amid Sports Authority Bankruptcy

Shares of Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA) fell by more than 5% today after the company slashed its revenue guidance for the full year, citing the closure of Sports Authority stores.  Sports Authority filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back in March. In a statement on Tuesday, the Baltimore based sports and clothing company said that it expects its 2016 revenue at $4.925 billion, down from an earlier estimate of $5 billion and  analysts’ estimates of $5.02 billion. Under Armour expects to take an impairment charge of about $23 million related to Sports Authority’s bankruptcy this quarter. The company only earned $43 million in revenues from Sports Authority this year, much less than the expected $163 million. Out of the nearly 766 funds tracked by Insider Monkey, 21 funds were positioned in Under Armour Inc (NYSE:UA) as of the end of the first quarter of 2016. Columbus Circle Investors owns 763,538 shares of the company.
