Is Ctrip.com International, Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ:CTRP) a buy?

To the average investor, there are dozens of metrics market participants can use to track stocks. A couple of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite fund managers can outperform the broader indices by a superb margin (see just how much).

Equally as useful, positive insider trading sentiment is a second way to analyze the stock market universe. Just as you’d expect, there are many reasons for a corporate insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Many academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if shareholders know where to look (learn more here).
