ShoreTel, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOR)

In the financial world, there are tons of metrics market participants can use to monitor publicly traded companies. A duo of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the top fund managers can outperform the broader indices by a superb amount (see just how much).

Just as important, bullish insider trading sentiment is a second way to parse down the marketplace. Obviously, there are many stimuli for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if “monkeys” know what to do (learn more here).

Keeping this in mind, we’re going to take a peek at the key action surrounding ShoreTel, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHOR).
