Page 1 of 2

International Paper Company (NYSE:IP) is a steady member of many investors’ portfolios. So what are its richest investors doing to make piggybackers so bullish?

In the eyes of many market players, hedge funds are assumed to be delayed, outdated financial tools of an era lost to time. Although there are over 8,000 hedge funds trading today, this site aim at the leaders of this group, close to 525 funds. Analysts calculate that this group has its hands on the lion’s share of the smart money’s total capital, and by watching their best equity investments, we’ve identified a number of investment strategies that have historically outstripped the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outpaced the S&P 500 index by 18 percentage points per year 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 33 percentage points in 11 months (see all of our picks from August).

Equally as key, optimistic insider trading activity is a second way to look at the financial markets. As the old adage goes: there are many reasons for an executive to drop shares of his or her company, but only one, very clear reason why they would buy. Several academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if piggybackers understand what to do (learn more here).
