The number of bullish hedge fund positions stayed the same which is a slightly negative development in our experience

In today’s marketplace, there are dozens of gauges market participants can use to track Mr. Market. A duo of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite hedge fund managers can trounce their index-focused peers by a very impressive margin (see just how much).

Equally as important, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to break down the financial markets. There are many motivations for an upper level exec to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this method if investors understand what to do (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, we’re going to take a glance at the latest action encompassing TeleCommunication Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TSYS).
