In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are tons of indicators investors can use to track the equity markets. A duo of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the top investment managers can outclass the broader indices by a solid amount (see just how much).

Just as crucial, positive insider trading activity is another way to analyze the investments you’re interested in.

Several academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if “monkeys” know what to do (learn more here).
