In the financial world, there are many metrics shareholders can use to monitor the equity markets. Some of the most useful 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 fund managers can outpace the market by a very impressive margin (see just how much).

Just as integral, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the financial markets. There are lots of stimuli for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would initiate a purchase.
