Amateur investors are capitalizing on the market comeback more than Wall Street pros, according to Goldman Sachs. 

Goldman said that the companies popular with the amateurs traders are sharply outperforming the favorite picks of hedge funds and mutual funds since the market bottom. 

Goldman — using Robinhood, Robintrack and FactSet — compiled a portfolio of popular stocks among retail investors and the basket of equities is up 61% since the depths of the bear market in March. Goldman's hedge fund basket is only up 45% in the same period.

These are the best-performing stocks in Goldman's retail investor basket.
