Insider Monkey’s premise is simple. We believe we can outperform the S&P 500 Index ETFs by imitating the best stock picks of the best hedge funds.
Insider Monkey’s best performing hedge funds strategy returned 67.4% since its inception in May 2014 and outperformed the S&P 500 ETF (SPY)’s 46.8% gain by more than 20 percentage points.
Hedge funds are strongly incentivized to outperform the market. Some hedge fund managers make billions of dollars in a single year if they generate alpha. They hire the smartest students graduating from the best universities in the world. They hire those students’ professors. They hire the top experts and consultants in the field to gain just a tiny edge over other investors – including you. And sometimes they cheat and get their hands on illegal inside information. However, we think that hedge funds are more likely to get an edge over ordinary investors in smaller stocks because these stocks aren’t well-covered and well-researched by a lot of investors. So, we formed our thesis:
When several successful hedge fund managers buy the same stocks independent of each other, those stocks should outperform the market on average.
This is a very simple and intuitive thesis. Think about it. If hedge funds can’t beat the market by picking under-researched smaller stocks, they sure can’t beat the market by picking large cap stocks that are followed by everyone.
We weren’t surprised that best performing hedge funds’ most popular small-cap stock picks outperformed the market by 20 percentage points.
Our research director has a Ph.D. in financial economics and he has been doing quantitative stock research for 17 years. He has been focusing on the hedge fund space for the past 6 years. At the end of each quarter he identifies the 100 best performing hedge funds based on the performance of their stock picks at the end of the previous quarter.
Most of the time these hedge funds know what they are doing. They make concentrated bets in a small number of stocks and markets prove them right.
Insider Monkey uses a proprietary methodology to identify the best stock picks of these 100 best performing hedge funds. We have been testing the performance of these stocks for the past 3.5 years and the results are more than amazing.
The best stock picks of the best performing hedge funds returned 67.4% and beat the market by more than 20 percentage points. Sign up now to access this strategy’s latest picks. Subscription comes with a 14-day, no-risk money back guarantee.

As a Premium newsletter member you’ll also be entitled to our Billionaire Hedge Fund Dividend Strategy, which has outperformed its benchmark by 13.4 percentage points since its inception two years ago.
Most investors are directly or indirectly invested in long-term bonds. We believe this is an extremely bad idea because long-term bonds will deliver negative real returns over the next 10 years as inflation and interest rates start to go up. The goal of our strategy is to outperform the 10-year Treasury bonds ETF (IEF) by identifying 15 dividend stocks with upside potential. In this portfolio three small-cap dividend stocks favored by all hedge funds balanced by 12 large-cap dividend stocks that are favored by billionaires.
As a Premium newsletter member you’ll also be entitled to our list of most popular battleground stocks. Ordinary investors can benefit from this list by avoiding these stocks. Professional investors can benefit by shorting them. These stocks underperformed the S&P 500 Index by more than 83 percentage points since the beginning of September 2012.
More than 75 pages in length, the premium newsletter also covers our small-cap hedge fund strategy’s stock picks, in-depth analysis of 23 billionaire hedge fund managers and their best stock picks, most concentrated positions among hedge funds, stocks dumped by hedge funds, and high conviction picks of value hedge funds.
If you’d like hear what hedge fund managers think about hte market and individual stocks, but don’t have $5,000- $10,000 to spend on a hedge fund investment conference, the best alternative is reading hedge fund investor letters. Our quarterly newsletter devotes nearly a quarter of its pages to excerpts from hedge fund investor letters where fund managers discuss their market outlook or investment thesis in individual stocks.
For a limited time we have a 14-day no questions asked money back guarantee option.
