Intel Corporation (INTC)’s Wealthiest Investors Are Doing This

Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) has experienced an increase in hedge fund interest in recent months.

According to most market participants, hedge funds are viewed as slow, outdated financial vehicles of the past. While there are over 8000 funds trading at present, we hone in on the masters of this group, close to 450 funds. It is widely believed that this group oversees the majority of the smart money’s total asset base, and by tracking their top equity investments, we have found a number of investment strategies that have historically outperformed the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 beaten the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (check out a sample of our picks).

Equally as important, positive insider trading activity is another way to break down the stock market universe. Just as you’d expect, there are lots of stimuli for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would initiate a purchase. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if investors understand what to do (learn more here).

With these “truths” under our belt, let’s take a peek at the key action surrounding Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC).
