Is Celadon Group, Inc. (NYSE:CGI) the right pick for your portfolio? Investors who are in the know are selling. The number of bullish hedge fund bets stayed the same which is a slightly negative development in our experience

At the moment, there are plenty of metrics market participants can use to monitor their holdings. Some of the most innovative are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the top hedge fund managers can beat the broader indices by a superb amount (see just how much).

Just as key, bullish insider trading sentiment is a second way to break down the stock market universe. There are many stimuli for an executive to downsize shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would initiate a purchase. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this method if you understand where to look (learn more here).

Israel Englander’s fund, Catapult Capital Management, also said goodbye to its stock, about $0.7 million worth.
