Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT)

In today’s marketplace, there are dozens of methods market participants can use to watch publicly traded companies. A duo of the best are hedge fund and insider trading movement. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite money managers can outclass the S&P 500 by a solid amount (see just how much).

Equally as integral, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to parse down the world of equities. Obviously, there are lots of motivations for an insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Many academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand what to do (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, we’re going to take a peek at the key action regarding Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT).
