Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSYS)If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are seen as underperforming, old financial tools of yesteryear. While there are greater than 8000 funds with their doors open today, we choose to focus on the bigwigs of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the lion’s share of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by monitoring their top picks, we have determined a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum 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 trumped the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (explore the details and some picks here).

Just as key, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the marketplace. There are lots of motivations for an insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would initiate a purchase. Various academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this method if “monkeys” know where to look (learn more here).
