Oh my. What’s a smart The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAIN) investor to do now, with today’s +11% pop?

To many investors, hedge funds are viewed as useless, old investment vehicles of an era lost to time. Although there are In excess of 8,000 hedge funds with their doors open today, this site focuses on the elite of this group, about 525 funds. It is widely held that this group controls the majority of the smart money’s total capital, and by keeping an eye on their highest performing investments, we’ve revealed a few investment strategies that have historically outperformed Mr. Market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 beaten the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find a sample of our picks).

Just as crucial, bullish insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the financial markets.
