15 stocks that insiders love
Insider dealing occurs when a company director (such as a CEO, CFO, or COO) who has nonpublic information about a company buys or sells shares in that company. Company insiders are required by law to regularly report their share purchases and sales to the SEC.
A company’s insider trading tracking is a metric that can be used to determine the direction in which the company’s executives believe the company is being headed. If a number of insiders buy more shares in their company, they can expect the company to make strong profits in the future and that the stock price will rise in the near future.
For example, if Microsoft’s CEO, CFO, and COO recently purchased additional shares in Microsoft, it would be an indication that there may be unreported news that could have a positive impact on Microsoft’s share price in the near future.
