What’s a smart Insight Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ:NSIT) investor to do?

In the eyes of many traders, hedge funds are assumed to be overrated, old financial vehicles of a period lost to current times. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds trading today, this site aim at the top tier of this club, close to 525 funds. It is assumed that this group has its hands on the lion’s share of the smart money’s total capital, and by tracking their best picks, we’ve unsheathed a few investment strategies that have historically outperformed the broader indices. 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 started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find a sample of our picks).

Equally as key, positive insider trading sentiment is a second way to analyze the marketplace. There are lots of stimuli for a bullish insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).
