5 Stocks Hedge Funds Love -- and So Should You

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- There's a love story taking shape on Wall Street right now -- it's a hedge-fund-manager-meets-stock story. And the stocks hedge funds love in 2013 are worth noting this month.

To do that, they've been grabbing at more momentum names for the last quarter. But with a new calendar year a month in, hedge fund managers have been able to reset their performance clocks again and position themselves with names that still have some time to develop. Those are the ones that investors should be paying attention to.

And by comparing one quarter's filing to another, we can see how any single fund manager is moving their portfolio around.

Without further ado, here's a look at five stocks hedge funds love.
