>>5 Big Trades to Take in February

From hedge funds to individual investors, scores of market participants are turning to social media to figure out which stocks are worth watching. It’s a concept that’s known as “crowdsourcing,” and it uses the masses to identify emerging trends in the market.

Crowdsourcing has long been a popular tool for the advertising industry, but it also makes a lot of sense as an investment tool. After all, the market is completely driven by the supply and demand, so it can be valuable to see what names are trending among the crowd.

While some fund managers are already trying to leverage social media resources like Twitter to find algorithmic trading opportunities, for most investors, crowdsourcing works best as a starting point for investors who want a starting point in their analysis. Today, we’ll leverage the power of the crowd to take a look at some of the most active stocks on the market today.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Sean Williams]

    This week’s loser
    On the other side of the coin was networking equipment maker QLogic (NASDAQ: QLGC  ) , which tanked 4.8% on the week after disclosing that its CEO, Simon Biddiscombe, had resigned on Friday. In the interim, QLogic’s CFO, Jean Hu, will be the acting CEO. Anytime the management of a company changes, it provides a level of uncertainty that’s bound to unnerve investors. I’d urge current shareholders (of which I’m one) to remember that QLogic has been consistently profitable for years, has $5 in net cash per share, and is poised to benefit from higher infrastructure spending. Patience will pay off here!

  • [By Eric Volkman]

    QLogic (NASDAQ: QLGC  ) is soon to become a slimmer company. The firm announced that it will implement a restructuring plan this year, in a move to “streamline business operations with the goal of driving long-term profitable growth.” The effort will include a reduction in employee numbers. QLogic did not say how many jobs might be affected.

    One somewhat surprising stock on the list is a utility, New Jersey Resources (NJR). Utilities don’t typically score well in our Quadrix system, as a result of their slow-growth ways.

  • [By The Part-time Investor]

    New Jersey Resources (NJR)

    Since I wanted to increase the yield of my portfolio, I decided to look at just the REITs and Utilities for my new purchases, and not the "regular" stocks. I avoided MLPs due to the tax issues (which will be discussed later). I already own OHI, DLR, O, AVA and D. So I decided to buy DX, the only REIT I didn’t already own, and WEC, the utility which had the highest, and most consistent dividend growth rate.
