As it turns out, we have found that the most popular small cap stocks among hedge funds generate an average excess return of more »

  • Coinstar: A Good Buy?

    By Ishfaque Faruk - April 2, 2013 | Tickers: NCR, OUTR, VZ

    Automated retailer Coinstar (NASDAQ: OUTR) seems to be quite a favorite amongst the short-sellers. Roughly 45% of the company's outstanding shares are sold short, by investors who remain overly skeptical about the company's prospects.

    However, the disc rental business seems to be doing well for Coinstar as it expands beyond DVDs to higher quality Blu-ray discs as well as video game rentals. The company's strategy remains focused more »

    By Meena Krishnamsetty - January 12, 2013 | Tickers: ARIA, ENDP, NCR, SPN, VC

    Small-cap and mid-cap stocks don’t get as much attention from bankers, third-party analysts, and the media, which often leaves them less efficiently priced than large- and mega-caps. Hedge funds sometimes take advantage of this by dedicating their research teams to work on these lower valuation stocks as well, and so often earn substantial alpha from their investments. Retail investors can use smaller-cap stocks that hedge funds reported owning as more »
