In the eyes of most market participants, hedge funds are seen as worthless, old investment vehicles of the past. While there are over 8000 funds in operation at the moment, we choose to focus on the bigwigs of this group, about 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group controls most of the smart money’s total asset base, and by watching their best picks, we have unsheathed a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 topped the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).

Just as key, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to break down the marketplace. Obviously, there are lots of stimuli for an executive to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Many academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if piggybackers know where to look (learn more here).

Keeping this in mind, we’re going to take a peek at the recent action surrounding Cummins Inc. (NYSE:CMI).
