In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are many methods market participants can use to monitor Mr. Market. A pair of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the best investment managers can outperform their index-focused peers by a healthy margin (see just how much).

Equally as beneficial, optimistic insider trading activity is another way to parse down the stock market universe. Obviously, there are plenty of motivations for a corporate insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly.
