ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN) investors should be aware of an increase in hedge fund interest of late.

In today’s marketplace, there are tons of methods shareholders can use to track publicly traded companies. A duo of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading movement. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite money managers can trounce the market by a significant margin (see just how much).

Just as key, positive insider trading activity is a second way to parse down the world of equities. Just as you’d expect, there are plenty of reasons for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Many academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand where to look (learn more here).
