In the financial world, there are plenty of methods market participants can use to analyze Mr. Market. A duo of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite fund managers can trounce the S&P 500 by a superb amount (see just how much).

Equally as beneficial, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the marketplace. As the old adage goes: there are many motivations for a bullish insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would initiate a purchase. Many empirical studies have demonstrated the useful potential of this method if piggybackers know what to do (learn more here).

With these “truths” under our belt, we’re going to take a glance at the key action surrounding TESSCO Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:TESS).
