Page 1 of 2

To the average investor, there are dozens of methods market participants can use to monitor the equity markets. A pair of the most useful are hedge fund and insider trading activity. At Insider Monkey, our studies have shown that, historically, those who follow the best picks of the top investment managers can outclass the S&P 500 by a significant amount (see just how much).

Just as you’d expect, there are lots of motivations for an executive to sell shares of his or her company, but only one, very simple reason why they would buy. Plenty of academic studies have demonstrated the impressive potential of this tactic if “monkeys” understand where to look (learn more here).
