This Metric Says You Are Smart to Buy Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW)

Arrow Electronics, Inc. (NYSE:ARW) has experienced an increase in hedge fund interest recently.

At the moment, there are many methods market participants can use to analyze publicly traded companies. Some 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 top picks of the top money managers can outperform their index-focused peers by a very impressive amount (see just how much).


Equally as integral, optimistic insider trading activity is another way to parse down the financial markets. Just as you’d expect, there are lots of incentives for an insider to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this strategy if piggybackers know what to do (learn more here).
