Following and implementing insider transactions in a portfolio, and being successful at it, is a complicated undertaking. Investors who do not have the time and resources to implement the various insider trading strategies can use alternative investment tools such as ETFs. The current ETFs in the market are generally index-based strategies that employ quantitative/analyst methodologies. The Sabrient Large Cap Insider/Analyst Quant-weighted Index and the Sabrient All Cap Insider/Analyst Quant-weighted Index are both comprised of the top 100 publicly traded companies in the S&P 500 and S&P 1500 indexes respectively. These index strategies allow investors to identify and participate in stocks that corporate insiders are accumulating, offer access to a rules-based index approach to equity investing, and focus on insider transactions and analyst ratings to determine weightings within the Index.
