Hedge Funds Are Crazy About Boise Inc. (NYSE:BZ)

Boise Inc. (NYSE:BZ) investors should pay attention to an increase in hedge fund sentiment recently.

Boise Inc. (NYSE:BZ)

In the eyes of most shareholders, hedge funds are perceived as unimportant, old financial vehicles of the past. While there are over 8000 funds trading today, we at Insider Monkey hone in on the bigwigs of this club, about 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group controls the majority of the smart money’s total capital, and by watching their top stock picks, we have determined a few investment strategies that have historically outperformed Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 25 percentage points in 6.5 month (check out a sample of our picks).

Equally as key, bullish insider trading activity is another way to parse down the financial markets. Obviously, there are a variety of reasons for an upper level exec to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if “monkeys” know where to look (learn more here).

Consequently, we’re going to take a gander at the latest action surrounding Boise Inc. (NYSE:BZ).
