In the financial world, there are tons of methods market participants can use to watch Mr. Market. Two of the most under-the-radar are hedge fund and insider trading movement. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the top picks of the elite fund managers can outclass the broader indices by a significant amount (see just how much).

Equally as key, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the marketplace. Obviously, there are plenty of stimuli for an insider to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Many academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if you understand where to look (learn more here).

Now that that’s out of the way, we’re going to discuss the newest info for NV Energy, Inc. (NYSE:NVE).
