At the moment, there are a multitude of metrics shareholders can use to monitor stocks. A pair of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the best hedge fund managers can beat the market by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as crucial, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to look at the stock market universe. Obviously, there are plenty of motivations for a bullish insider to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly.
