Is TAL Education Group (ADR) (NYSE:XRS) a buy, sell, or hold? The best stock pickers are becoming less confident. The number of bullish hedge fund positions stayed the same which is a slightly negative development in our experience

Equally as integral, bullish insider trading activity is another way to break down the stock market universe. Obviously, there are a variety of stimuli for an insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if investors know where to look (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, it’s important to take a gander at the key action encompassing TAL Education Group (ADR) (NYSE:XRS).
