  • We are not looking for the shares to move because of insider purchases. We are looking at insider buying as an indicator that they are buying because they know something that the market price does not yet reflect.

    Insiders know something that we do not know and are willing to spend there own funds on it. Insiders can use insider purchases to alert friends and family when they should increase their positions size. It is probably the only legal way, for sure the easiest way, for insiders to get the word out.
