To most traders, hedge funds are viewed as unimportant, outdated investment vehicles of years past. While there are more than 8000 funds in operation at present, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the leaders of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the lion’s share of the smart money’s total asset base, and by watching their highest performing investments, we have unearthed a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat 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 24 percentage points in 7 months (see the details here).

Just as important, positive insider trading activity is another way to break down the stock market universe. Obviously, there are lots of stimuli for a bullish insider to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand where to look (learn more here).
