    Here is a current list of the top 10 insider buys and sells from last month. In total, the top 10 insiders sold shares in an amount of USD 5.5 billion. Roughly USD 0.3 billion were bought from the top 10 insiders. The sales to buys ratio amounts to 18.18.

    An insider is a person who has the function as officer, director, key employee or large shareholder with potential access to non-public information about the company. Insider trades could indicate that insiders, those who probably know the company best, are confident about the future success. Insider buys and sells are no perfect indicators, but they often show the intension of better informed persons to their investments. In many cases, the company became worse after insider sold stocks and vice versa. However, I screened the latest buys and sells and created a list of the top transactions.

    Is it just me or have i picked up on something that has been going on lately. Here is what i have noticed. On stocks like CIM and a few others, it seems that right about dividend time, a little before actually, 2 to 3 weeks, there will be a sell off and the price will be driven down, actually running a over sell balance and then right before the dividend, after the price has been drivin down, the balances will switch to an over bought. Is this positioning by some of the big outfits to drive down the price, then buy right before the ex-dividend date, to pick up the dividend, and then sell off again as the price rises? Just asking, but sure smells to me.
