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).

At the end of the fourth quarter, a total of 9 of the hedge funds we track were bullish in this stock, a change of -10% from the previous quarter. With the smart money’s positions undergoing their usual ebb and flow, there exists an “upper tier” of noteworthy hedge fund managers who were boosting their stakes substantially.

Since UDR, Inc. (NYSE:UDR) has faced bearish sentiment from hedge fund managers, it’s easy to see that there lies a certain “tier” of hedge funds that elected to cut their entire stakes last quarter.
