In the eyes of many of your fellow readers, hedge funds are viewed as useless, old financial vehicles of a period lost to current times. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds in operation currently, this site focuses on the crème de la crème of this club, close to 525 funds. It is assumed that this group oversees the lion’s share of the smart money’s total assets, and by monitoring their highest performing equity investments, we’ve revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a year 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 beaten the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find a sample of our picks).

Equally as useful, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to analyze the stock market universe. There are plenty of reasons for an insider to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).

What’s more, we’re going to discuss the newest info for Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX).
