Do Hedge Funds and Insiders Love Tangoe Inc (TNGO)?

Tangoe Inc (NASDAQ:TNGO) has seen a decrease in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds lately.

Tangoe Inc

In the eyes of most traders, hedge funds are seen as slow, old financial vehicles of yesteryear. While there are greater than 8000 funds in operation at the moment, we hone in on the top tier of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the majority of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by keeping an eye on their top picks, we have formulated a few investment strategies that have historically outpaced the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outperformed the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (see the details here).

Equally as beneficial, bullish insider trading sentiment is a second way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. Just as you’d expect, there are plenty of motivations for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if investors know what to do (learn more here).

Consequently, it’s important to take a glance at the latest action regarding Tangoe Inc (NASDAQ:TNGO).
