Why These Five Stocks Are Gaining Ground on Monday?

US stocks are sharply down on Monday as Brexit news sparked a sell-off on Friday, sending the markets deep in the red. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has plummeted more than 300 points and no sign of improvement in the market sentiment is in sight as on Monday all three major indexes have been losing ground since the opening bell.

However, Vista Gold Corp. (NYSEMKT:VGZ), GW Pharmaceuticals PLC- ADR (NASDAQ:GWPH), Barrick Gold Corporation (USA) (NYSE:ABX), Suffolk Bancorp (NYSE:SCNB) and Skullcandy Inc (NASDAQ:SKUL) are gaining ground today. Let’s find out why these stocks are up and see what the investors tracked by us think about them.

We believe that imitating hedge funds and other large institutional investors can be helpful in identifying stocks capable of outperforming the broader market. Through extensive research that covered portfolios of several hundred large investors between 1999 and 2012, we determined that following the small-cap stocks that large money managers are collectively bullish on, can generate monthly returns nearly 1.0 percentage points above the market (see more details here).
