Page 1 of 2

In the financial world, there are a multitude of metrics market participants can use to track stocks. Two of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite hedge fund managers can outclass their index-focused peers by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as crucial, positive insider trading activity is a second way to look at the marketplace. There are lots of stimuli for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Various academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if investors know what to do (learn more here).
