DVAX shareholders have witnessed an increase in activity from the world's largest hedge funds of late. There were 10 hedge funds in our database with DVAX holdings at the end of the previous quarter. To most shareholders, hedge funds are perceived as worthless, outdated investment tools of yesteryear. While there are over 8000 funds with their doors open today, we look at the crème de la crème of this group, close to 450 funds. Most estimates calculate that this group oversees the majority of all hedge funds' total capital, and by monitoring their highest performing equity investments, we have formulated a few investment strategies that have historically beaten the broader indices. Our small-cap hedge fund strategy outperformed 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 topped the S&P 500 index by 24 percentage points in 7 months (explore the details and some picks here). Just as beneficial, positive insider trading sentiment is another way to break down the investments you're interested in. As the old adage goes: there are plenty of stimuli for an upper level exec to cut shares of his or her company, but just one, very clear reason why they would behave bullishly. Various academic studies have demonstrated the market-beating potential of this tactic if "monkeys" understand what to do (learn more here). With all of this in mind, it's important to take a peek at the latest action encompassing Dynavax Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ:DVAX).
