What should smart Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CKEC) investors do?

In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are a multitude of methods investors can use to analyze Mr. Market. A duo 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 hedge fund managers can outpace the broader indices by a significant amount (see just how much).

Equally as key, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to look at the financial markets. Obviously, there are plenty of motivations for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Many academic studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand where to look (learn more here).

Thus, let’s discuss the newest info for Carmike Cinemas, Inc. (NASDAQ:CKEC).
