To most stock holders, hedge funds are seen as worthless, old investment vehicles of the past. While there are over 8000 funds with their doors open at present, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the bigwigs of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group oversees most of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by tracking their top investments, we have revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to 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 (check out a sample of our picks).

Just as beneficial, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to parse down the stock market universe. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of motivations for a bullish insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this strategy if piggybackers know where to look (learn more here).
