To the average investor, there are a multitude of methods market participants can use to analyze the equity markets. A duo of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite money managers can trounce their index-focused peers by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as integral, bullish insider trading sentiment is a second way to break down the stock market universe. Just as you’d expect, there are a number of reasons for an upper level exec to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Many academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this method if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).

With these “truths” under our belt, let’s take a look at the key action encompassing Imperial Oil Limited (USA) (NYSEAMEX:IMO).
