Page 1 of 2

Gamco Investors Inc. (NYSE:GBL) has experienced a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money of late.

If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are seen as unimportant, outdated investment vehicles of yesteryear. While there are over 8000 funds in operation at the moment, we at Insider Monkey look at the aristocrats of this group, about 450 funds. It is estimated that this group controls the majority of all hedge funds’ total asset base, and by keeping an eye on their top stock picks, we have revealed a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed 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 outclassed the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (check out a sample of our picks).

Equally as important, bullish insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the investments you’re interested in. Obviously, there are lots of incentives for an executive to get rid of shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would buy. Many academic studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this strategy if “monkeys” know where to look (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, it’s important to take a look at the key action encompassing Gamco Investors Inc. (NYSE:GBL).
