Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (NYSE:TGP) has experienced a decrease in support from the world’s most elite money managers in recent months.

To most traders, hedge funds are viewed as slow, outdated investment tools of years past. While there are more than 8000 funds trading at present, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the masters of this club, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group has its hands on most of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by monitoring their top stock picks, we have identified a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outperformed the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).

Just as key, positive insider trading activity is a second way to parse down the world of equities. Just as you’d expect, there are a variety of stimuli for a corporate insider to sell shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would buy. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if you understand what to do (learn more here).
