Page 1 of 2

Kinder Morgan Management, LLC (NYSE:KMR) was in 10 hedge funds’ portfolio at the end of March. KMR investors should pay attention to an increase in support from the world’s most elite money managers recently. There were 8 hedge funds in our database with KMR positions at the end of the previous quarter.

If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are assumed to be unimportant, outdated investment tools of yesteryear. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open at the moment, we look at the masters of this group, around 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group oversees the lion’s share of the smart money’s total capital, and by paying attention to their top picks, we have unearthed a number of investment strategies that have historically outstripped Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outperformed the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).

RENAISSANCE TECHNOLOGIESJust as important, optimistic insider trading activity is another way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. Obviously, there are many motivations for an insider to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this method if investors know what to do (learn more here).

Keeping this in mind, it’s important to take a peek at the recent action regarding Kinder Morgan Management, LLC (NYSE:KMR).
