Forestar Group Inc. (FOR): Hedge Funds Are Bullish and Insiders Are Undecided, What Should You Do?

Page 1 of 2

In today’s marketplace, there are tons of metrics market participants can use to analyze the equity markets. A couple of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the best hedge fund managers can beat the market by a superb amount (see just how much).

Just as key, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to analyze the marketplace. Just as you’d expect, there are many stimuli for a bullish insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).
