In today’s marketplace, there are many metrics investors can use to track their holdings. A pair of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite investment managers can trounce their index-focused peers by a healthy margin (see just how much).

Equally as necessary, bullish insider trading sentiment is a second way to analyze the investments you’re interested in. Obviously, there are plenty of reasons for an upper level exec to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if you understand what to do (learn more here).
