Page 1 of 2

In today’s marketplace, there are tons of indicators investors can use to track the equity markets. A couple of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite fund managers can beat the market by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Equally as necessary, optimistic insider trading activity is another way to look at the marketplace. As the old adage goes: there are many motivations for an insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this strategy if shareholders understand what to do (learn more here).
