Page 1 of 2

Now, according to many market players, hedge funds are perceived as delayed, outdated financial vehicles of an era lost to time. Although there are more than 8,000 hedge funds in operation in present day, Insider Monkey aim at the crème de la crème of this group, about 525 funds. It is widely held that this group controls the lion’s share of the hedge fund industry’s total assets, and by paying attention to their highest quality picks, we’ve spotted a number of investment strategies that have historically outstripped Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outstripped 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 beaten the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find the details here).

Equally as crucial, positive insider trading activity is another way to analyze the investments you’re interested in. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of stimuli for an upper level exec 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 valuable potential of this strategy if you understand where to look (learn more here).
