Page 1 of 2

iSoftStone Holdings Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:ISS) has experienced a decrease in enthusiasm from smart money lately.

iSoftStone Holdings Ltd (ADR) (NYSE:ISS)To most stock holders, hedge funds are assumed to be underperforming, outdated financial vehicles of yesteryear. While there are greater than 8000 funds trading at present, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the upper echelon of this group, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group has its hands on most of all hedge funds’ total capital, and by keeping an eye on their highest performing picks, we have revealed a few investment strategies that have historically outpaced the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outclassed the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (see the details here).

Equally as important, bullish insider trading activity is another way to parse down the world of equities. There are plenty of incentives for an upper level exec to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if you know what to do (learn more here).
