Page 1 of 2

If you were to ask many of your fellow readers, hedge funds are viewed as overrated, old investment tools of an era lost to time. Although there are more than 8,000 hedge funds trading today, Insider Monkey looks at the elite of this club, about 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group controls the majority of the hedge fund industry’s total assets, and by paying attention to their highest performing investments, we’ve spotted a number of investment strategies that have historically outstripped the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outstripped the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find a sample of our picks).

Equally as useful, positive insider trading activity is another way to look at the investments you’re interested in. As the old adage goes: there are many incentives for an upper level exec to downsize shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would buy. Various academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if you know what to do (learn more here).
