Page 1 of 2

Is Mag Silver Corp (USA) (NYSEAMEX:MVG) worth your attention right now? Money managers are becoming less hopeful. The number of long hedge fund positions stayed the same which is a slightly negative development in our experience

In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are a multitude of methods shareholders can use to monitor the equity markets. A couple of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the top money managers can outperform the market by a solid amount (see just how much).

Equally as beneficial, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to parse down the marketplace. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of stimuli for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Several academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand where to look (learn more here).

With all of this in mind, it’s important to take a gander at the key action regarding Mag Silver Corp (USA) (NYSEAMEX:MVG).
