At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite money managers can trounce the S&P 500 by a superb margin (see just how much).

Just as important, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to parse down the stock market universe. As the old adage goes: there are a variety of stimuli for a bullish insider to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand what to do (learn more here).
