Now, according to many traders, hedge funds are assumed to be bloated, old financial vehicles of a forgotten age. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds in operation in present day, Insider Monkey looks at the crème de la crème of this group, about 525 funds. It is widely held that this group oversees the lion’s share of the hedge fund industry’s total capital, and by tracking their highest performing stock picks, we’ve discovered a number of investment strategies that have historically outpaced the S&P 500. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum for a decade in our back tests, and since we’ve started sharing our picks with our subscribers at the end of August 2012, we have outclassed the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (find the details here).

Just as useful, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to look at the financial markets. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of motivations for an upper level exec to sell shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Several academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).

Now that that’s out of the way, it’s important to discuss the recent info about Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY).
