Stock Market Today: Tech Stocks on Top Again as Fed Seeks a Helping Hand
The seesaw in market leadership tilted back toward tech on Tuesday as Federal Reserve leaders continued to stump for Congressional help and as European COVID concerns continued to bubble.

Fed Chair Jerome Powell told the House Committee on Financial Services that, while the economy is indeed improving, continued progress is "highly uncertain" and continued to stress the importance of additional fiscal stimulus. Separately, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans was more specific, saying the country risks "recessionary dynamics" without a new rescue package.

The Nasdaq Composite climbed 1.7% to 10,963 thanks to gains in the tech and communications sectors. It was also helped by a 5.7% surge in Amazon.com (AMZN), which received a Buy call from Bernstein, launched a $499 Peloton (PTON, -0.4) knock-off bike called Prime Bike and set the stage for this year's Prime Day.

Hedge Funds' 25 Top Blue-Chip Stocks to Buy Now
A good, old-fashioned investor panic that punished even solid blue-chip stocks led investors to pull money out of hedge funds like crazy earlier this year. But now it appears that the good times are rolling again.

The benchmark Eurekahedge Hedge Fund Index is sporting a five-month trailing return of almost 13% since March. That includes a 1.9% improvement in August. It's little wonder, then, that net inflows to hedge funds increased by nearly $18 billion last month.

If hedge funds are bullish on a recovery in both the economy and equity markets, it's not a bad idea to see how the so-called smart money is positioning itself for those bets. To get an idea of what hedge funds are holding these days, we turned to WhaleWisdom, where we were able to determine hedge funds' favorite names based on the number of funds holding a position in any given stock. 

Big, blue-chip stocks are unsurprisingly over-represented on the list. Indeed, of the 25 most popular hedge fund stocks, 10 are components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Partly that's a function of their massive market capitalizations and attendant liquidity, which creates ample room for big institutional investors to build or sell large positions.

In plenty of other cases, however, hedge funds are betting on some of today's hottest growth stocks. 

Have a look at hedge funds' 25 favorite blue-chip stocks to buy now. All these names likely appeal to the smart money because of their size, strong track records or outsized growth prospects, but we'll delve into a few specifics that make each pick special.
