Hedge Funds Are Selling Wabash National Corporation (WNC)

Page 1 of 2

In the financial world, there are plenty of gauges shareholders can use to analyze stocks. Two of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the top money managers can outpace the S&P 500 by a significant amount (see just how much).

Just as crucial, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to analyze the world of equities. Just as you’d expect, there are plenty of stimuli for a bullish insider to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if “monkeys” understand where to look (learn more here).

Furthermore, it’s important to examine the latest info surrounding Wabash National Corporation (NYSE:WNC).
