To most stock holders, hedge funds are assumed to be slow, old investment vehicles of the past. While there are over 8000 funds with their doors open at the moment, we look at the elite of this club, around 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group oversees most of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by watching their best picks, we have deciphered a number of investment strategies that have historically outstripped the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see all of our picks from August).

Equally as important, bullish insider trading activity is another way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. As the old adage goes: there are lots of stimuli for a corporate insider to cut shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this method if you understand what to do (learn more here).
