Page 1 of 2

In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are tons of indicators market participants can use to track publicly traded companies. Some of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite hedge fund managers can trounce their index-focused peers by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Equally as necessary, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to analyze the stock market universe. As the old adage goes: there are many incentives for an upper level exec to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would buy. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if investors understand where to look (learn more here).

Keeping this in mind, we’re going to discuss the latest info about Analog Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADI).
