In the financial world, there are many gauges market participants can use to track stocks. A couple of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the best money managers can beat the S&P 500 by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Just as key, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to break down the stock market universe. Just as you’d expect, there are a number of incentives for an upper level exec to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Various academic studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this method if you know where to look (learn more here).
