Page 1 of 2

If you were to ask many of your fellow readers, hedge funds are viewed as overrated, outdated financial vehicles of a forgotten age. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds with their doors open currently, this site focuses on the leaders of this club, close to 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group oversees the lion’s share of all hedge funds’ total assets, and by keeping an eye on their highest performing equity investments, we’ve revealed a few investment strategies that have historically outperformed the market. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy beat the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per annum 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 outperformed the S&P 500 index by 33 percentage points in 11 months (see all of our picks from August).

Equally as useful, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to look at the stock market universe. Obviously, there are a variety of stimuli for a bullish insider to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very obvious reason why they would behave bullishly. Various empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this tactic if “monkeys” know where to look (learn more here).
