In today’s marketplace, there are many indicators market participants can use to track stocks. A duo of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading movement. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite money managers can outpace the S&P 500 by a healthy amount (see just how much).

Equally as important, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to parse down the marketplace. As the old adage goes: there are lots of incentives for a bullish insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this method if shareholders know where to look (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, let’s take a peek at the key action regarding UDR, Inc. (NYSE:UDR).
