Navios Maritime Holdings Inc. (NYSE:NM) investors should be aware of an increase in hedge fund interest recently.

In the financial world, there are plenty of indicators shareholders can use to monitor Mr. Market. A couple of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading interest. At Insider Monkey, our research analyses have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite investment managers can outclass their index-focused peers by a very impressive amount (see just how much).

There are plenty of motivations for an executive to get rid of shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly.
