Page 1 of 2

At the moment, there are many indicators market participants can use to watch publicly traded companies. A couple of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading activity.

Many academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if shareholders know where to look (learn more here).

Because Brookfield Office Properties Inc (USA) (NYSE:BPO) has faced declining interest from the smart money’s best and brightest, logic holds that there exists a select few money managers that decided to sell off their full holdings heading into Q2. At the top of the heap, Ben Levine, Andrew Manuel and Stefan Renold’s LMR Partners dumped the largest stake of the “upper crust” of funds we watch, comprising about $1.9 million in stock, and Steven Cohen of SAC Capital Advisors was right behind this move, as the fund dumped about $0.5 million worth.
