Page 1 of 2

Shares of Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:MRVL) are up more than 60% year-to-date, so is now the time to take profits?

To the average investor, there are a multitude of methods investors can use to analyze publicly traded companies. A duo of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the top hedge fund managers can outclass the broader indices by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

Just as crucial, positive insider trading sentiment is a second way to analyze the world of equities. There are a variety of motivations for a bullish insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Several academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this method if shareholders understand what to do (learn more here).

Furthermore, let’s study the newest info for Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:MRVL).
