  • Have data or information that others don’t have.
  • Analyze the data or information faster than others, and apply it to trades faster and more correctly.
  • Find out before others that the company had a health incident.
  • Sell the stock more quickly than others based on that information.
  • Find out (or correctly predict) that a giant holder of Chipotle would dump the stock, or conversely that the stock has dipped enough, and smart buyers will start buying it up at the current price.
