The Importance of Insider Transactions

Insider transactions should not be used primarily to make an investment decision, however an insider transaction can be an important factor in an investment decision.

Any shareholder who holds at least 10% of a company is legally referred to as an “insider”. This can include executives in the C-suite and large hedge funds. These insiders must notify the public of their transactions via a Form 4, which must be filed within two business days of the transaction.

When a company insider makes a new purchase, it is an indication that they expect the price to rise.
