Is GSI Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:GSIT) the right pick for your portfolio? Money managers are holding steady. The number of bullish hedge fund bets stayed the same which is a slightly negative development in our experience.

GSI Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:GSIT)

To most shareholders, hedge funds are perceived as underperforming, old financial vehicles of years past. While there are over 8000 funds trading today, we choose to focus on the top tier of this group, close to 450 funds. It is estimated that this group has its hands on the lion’s share of all hedge funds’ total asset base, and by tracking their highest performing picks, we have brought to light a number of investment strategies that have historically beaten the S&P 500 index. 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 24 percentage points in 7 months (see all of our picks from August).

Just as key, bullish insider trading activity is a second way to parse down the stock market universe. Just as you’d expect, there are a variety of motivations for an insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but just one, very simple reason why they would behave bullishly. Various academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if investors understand what to do (learn more here).
