Should Entergy Corporation (NYSE:ETR) investors track the following data?

Now, according to many investors, hedge funds are assumed to be bloated, old financial vehicles of a period lost to current times. Although there are more than 8,000 hedge funds in operation today, this site looks at the elite of this group, close to 525 funds. It is assumed that this group has its hands on most of the smart money’s total capital, and by monitoring their highest performing investments, we’ve figured out a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year 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 trumped the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find the details here).

Equally as useful, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the investments you’re interested in. There are many incentives for an upper level exec to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this method if investors understand what to do (learn more here).
