Turkcell Iletisim Hizmetleri A.S. (ADR) (NYSE:TKC)

In the eyes of most stock holders, hedge funds are seen as underperforming, outdated financial tools of the past. While there are more than 8000 funds with their doors open at present, we at Insider Monkey look at the moguls of this group, about 450 funds. It is estimated that this group has its hands on the majority of the smart money’s total capital, and by paying attention to their highest performing stock picks, we have revealed a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten the S&P 500 index. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points a year 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 outclassed the S&P 500 index by 23.3 percentage points in 8 months (see the details here).

Just as integral, positive insider trading activity is another way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. Obviously, there are plenty of motivations for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly.
