If you’d ask most traders, hedge funds are viewed as unimportant, outdated financial vehicles of the past. While there are greater than 8000 funds in operation today, we at Insider Monkey choose to focus on the leaders of this club, about 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group oversees the lion’s share of the smart money’s total asset base, and by keeping an eye on their best picks, we have discovered a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points annually 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 outperformed the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see all of our picks from August).

Just as important, optimistic insider trading sentiment is a second way to break down the marketplace. There are plenty of incentives for an insider to drop shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if shareholders know what to do (learn more here).
