Insider Trading Roundup: January 5, 2011

Insider Buying

Two good articles over on the Motley Fool:

  1. high momentum stock seeing significant insider buying.
    1. “To compile the list, we created a universe of 140 stocks that have seen strong gains over the last quarter. Additionally, all of these companies have had positive earnings and sales growth over the last five years. We then narrowed down the list by only focusing on those stocks that have seen insider buying over the last three months.”
  2. income stocks being bought up by insiders
    1. “It’s fair to assume that a firm’s management has a lot more access to intel than we do — so if they’re snapping up company stock, it’s a pretty good sign of things to come.”

Both these articles were written by Kapitall.  Check out their tools and the company is fresh off a significant funding round.

Insider Selling

Interesting article about CFO and CTO selling at First Solar ($FSLR)

Insider Trading Strategy

CXO Advisory has a great piece on the evolving informativeness of insider trading (sub required) from a paper entitled “Has the Informativeness of Insider Filing Changed Post Sox? Has the Latest Credit Crunch Improved this Informativeness?” (Ashrafee Hossain).

Evidence indicates that implementation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the credit crisis have both enhanced the informativeness of insider trading data as reported via SEC Form 4.
