13 Stocks Institutional Investors Won't Stop Buying

University endowments, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, hedge funds, and other institutional investors pour money into a group of 13 elite stocks.

These institutional investors don't get easily swayed by hot stocks that are popular with retail investors. You probably won't see a Tesla or a SnapChat in this group because institutional investors know that these "popular kid" stocks almost always aren't great investments. However, you will find some excellent companies on this list backed by real earnings and real fundamentals.

We had to comb through every 13D and 13F filing that institutional investors have filed with the SEC in the last quarter to identify these stocks. After reviewing more than 5,000 filings, we have identified 13 companies that institutional investors have been buying left. Big money investors are pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into these stocks.
