Is it smart to be bullish on Syneron Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ:ELOS)?

Now, according to many investors, hedge funds are viewed as delayed, outdated investment tools of an era lost to time. Although there are more than 8,000 hedge funds trading currently, Insider Monkey aim at the elite of this group, close to 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group controls the majority of the smart money’s total capital, and by paying attention to their highest quality equity investments, we’ve found a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced 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 outclassed the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (explore the details and some picks here).

Equally as necessary, bullish insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the stock market universe. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of incentives for a corporate insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Several academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this method if “monkeys” know what to do (learn more here).
