What’s a smart Invacare Corporation (NYSE:IVC) investor to do?

To many of your peers, hedge funds are perceived as useless, outdated investment vehicles of an era lost to time. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds with their doors open today, Insider Monkey focuses on the bigwigs of this club, close to 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group controls most of all hedge funds’ total assets, and by paying attention to their highest quality picks, we’ve identified a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outstripped the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a 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 topped the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (see all of our picks from August).

Equally as necessary, positive insider trading sentiment is a second way to analyze the financial markets. There are a number of stimuli for a bullish insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would buy. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this strategy if “monkeys” understand what to do (learn more here).

What’s more, let’s discuss the recent info about Invacare Corporation (NYSE:IVC).
