Just as important, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to parse down the investments you’re interested in. As the old adage goes: there are a number of motivations for a corporate insider to downsize shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Several empirical studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).

Now, it’s important to take a look at the latest action surrounding LG Display Co Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:LPL).

Heading into 2013, a total of 9 of the hedge funds we track held long positions in this stock, a change of 0% from one quarter earlier. With hedge funds’ sentiment swirling, there exists an “upper tier” of key hedge fund managers who were increasing their holdings significantly.
