    Is Penumbra Inc (PEN) A Good Investment According To Hedge Funds?

    Investing in hedge funds can bring large profits, but it’s not for everybody, since hedge funds are available only for high-net-worth individuals. A particularly interesting group of stocks that hedge funds like is the small-caps. The huge amount of capital does not allow hedge funds to invest a lot in small-caps, but our research showed that their most popular small-cap ideas are less efficiently priced and generate stronger returns than their large- and mega-cap picks and the broader market.

    The 1 Stock I'd Buy Right Now

    While the last five years have been very rewarding for Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI) shareholders, the video game publisher's stock has recently taken a sharp turn into bearish territory.

    Better Buy: Square vs. American Express

    New digital payment providers like Square (NYSE: SQ) have been shaking things up in the payment space, but traditional payment providers like American Express (NYSE: AXP) are not going away. Square has had great success with its strategy of selling card readers to small merchants and then cross-selling those merchants additional services like payroll and accounting tools to help merchants grow their business. One of the main issues with Square is that it hasn't generated a profit. The company posted a rare profit of $20 million in the last quarter, but most of that was from unrealized gains on Square's equity investment in Eventbrite -- an online event planning service.
