Insider trades are unfair, illegal and they damage the whole financial system. The good thing for a normal investor is that insider trades must be published, and they have a signal effect. They indicate that insiders, those who probably know the company best, are confident or skeptical about the future success. This sentiment could be used for the own asset allocation. I screened the latest insider transactions from last month and aggregated the sales and buys of each company. Here are my 3 top stocks that were sold by insiders.

1. Dollar General (NYSE:DG) is acting within the discount and variety stores industry. The company has a market capitalization of $12.9 billion, generates revenues in an amount of $13.8 billion and a net income of $653.7 million. It follows Price/Earnings ratio is 20.0, Price/Sales 0.9 and Price/Book ratio 3.0. The stock was sold in an amount of $2.6 billion.

2. Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) is acting within the internet information providers industry. The company has a market capitalization of $170.3 billion, generates revenues in an amount of $33.3 billion and a net income of $9.0 billion.
