In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are a multitude of methods market participants can use to analyze publicly traded companies. A couple of the best are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the top fund managers can outperform their index-focused peers by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as integral, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to break down the financial markets.
