Lone Pine Resources Inc (LPR): Insiders Aren’t Crazy About It

Lone Pine Resources Inc (NYSE:LPR)Lone Pine Resources Inc (NYSE:LPR) investors should be aware of a decrease in hedge fund interest lately.

To most shareholders, hedge funds are seen as worthless, old financial tools of years past. While there are more than 8000 funds trading today, we at Insider Monkey look at the bigwigs of this club, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group has its hands on most of all hedge funds’ total asset base, and by paying attention to their best picks, we have unearthed a few investment strategies that have historically outstripped the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve began to sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outpaced the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).

Equally as key, positive insider trading activity is a second way to parse down the investments you’re interested in.
