Daily Round Up 7/5/16: pdvWireless, Air T, American Homes 4 Rent, Oragenics

by: InsiderInsights


Tables of the top insider purchases and sales filed with the SEC on 7/5/16, based on dollar value.

Dollar values often do not equate with significance when it comes to insider trades.

Proprietary Insider Company Ratings are relayed to clarify significance.

Dollar value is only one metric to assess the significance of an insider transaction, but when high dollar value intersects with significance it spotlights a stock that investors should take the time to consider. InsiderInsights Daily Round Up articles are intended as initial research tools, so investors can separate real insider investment intelligence from time-wasting noise.

Educational note from InsiderInsights:

Insider filing volumes are at a seasonal low point due to companies closing trading windows to their insiders until quarterly earnings are released. As a result, the dollar values of trades featured in our Daily round Up articles (particularly the purchases) will likely be lower than usual until early August.
