Page 1 of 2

In the 21st century investor’s toolkit, there are dozens of gauges investors can use to monitor stocks. Some of the most underrated are hedge fund and insider trading movement. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the elite investment managers can outclass the broader indices by a significant amount (see just how much).

Just as useful, optimistic insider trading sentiment is another way to look at the marketplace. Just as you’d expect, there are a variety of incentives for a corporate insider to get rid of shares of his or her company, but only one, very obvious reason why they would initiate a purchase. Plenty of empirical studies have demonstrated the valuable potential of this method if investors know what to do (learn more here).
