Page 1 of 2

Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG) has experienced an increase in activity from the world’s largest hedge funds recently.

At the moment, there are a multitude of gauges shareholders can use to watch their holdings. Some of the best are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite investment managers can outclass their index-focused peers by a superb amount (see just how much).

Just as key, bullish insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the stock market universe. As the old adage goes: there are lots of reasons for a bullish insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if you understand where to look (learn more here).

Keeping this in mind, we’re going to take a look at the key action encompassing Tredegar Corporation (NYSE:TG).
