Retail Investors Outperforming Professionals With Citigroup, Ford, and Sirius XM Radio Inc.

In today's market, it's not the professionals who are celebrating as much as the retail investors.  Consider three stocks that seem to show up in retail portfolios everywhere: Citigroup Inc. (C), Ford Motor Company (F), and Sirius XM Radio Inc (SIRI).  Institutional ownership in these stocks are well under 50% which suggests a significant retail presence in companies with a combined market cap of over 85 billion.  In just the last month, Ford is up 25%, Citigroup is up 77% and Sirius is up an astounding 104%.

On the other hand, look at three top professional stocks, where at least one of these stocks will pop up in just about any fund manager's portfolio: Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft and Exxon Mobil (XOM) Corporation.  J&J is up 3%, Microsoft (MSFT) is down 3% and Exxon is down 1%.  Granted, these companies are in the stratosphere in terms of a combined market cap of over 700 billion.  But it is significant to note, nonetheless, that retail investors are appearing to be the real victors in this new post apocalyse market.
