What’s a smart Canadian National Railway (USA) (NYSE:CNI) investor to do?

To the average investor, there are many gauges shareholders can use to analyze the equity markets. A pair of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the best money managers can outpace their index-focused peers by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as useful, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to analyze the stock market universe. Obviously, there are lots of incentives for a corporate insider to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Many academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if “monkeys” know where to look (learn more here).
