Do you value the buying and selling trends of smart money institutional managers? We ran a screen with that idea in mind.

We began by screening the healthcare sector for stocks that offer dividends (yields above 1%).

We then screened for those with bearish sentiment from institutional investors, with significant net institutional sales over the last quarter representing at least 5% of share float. This indicates that institutional investors such as hedge fund managers and mutual fund managers expect these names to underperform in the future.
