Even the threat of a ban, as is the case this time, significantly boosts sales.

  • Billionaire Ken Fisher’s Small Cap Picks

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - June 28, 2013 | Tickers: CAB, DPZ, PRXL, SIVB, RYL

    Our analysis of quarterly 13F filings has shown that on average, the most popular small cap stocks among hedge funds earn an average excess return of 18 percentage points per year (learn more about our small cap strategy).
