Velti Plc (NASDAQ:VELT)To the average investor, there are a multitude of gauges market participants can use to monitor publicly traded companies. A couple of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading sentiment. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the top investment managers can beat the S&P 500 by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Equally as important, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. There are many reasons for a corporate insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand what to do (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, we’re going to take a glance at the key action encompassing Velti Plc (NASDAQ:VELT).
