Do you value the buying and selling trends of smart money institutional investors? If so, you may be interested in this list.

We began by screening the retail industry for stocks with positive market sentiment, rallying above their 20-day, 50-day, and 200-day moving averages.

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.
