  • Insider trading wrap-up - Week ended June 24, 2011 0 comments
    Jun 26, 2011 4:22 AM | about stocks: VLCM, PCP, TXI, PCYC, VHI, BRK.A, BRK.B, HLX, BZC, AZO, CKXE, GES, PRMW, AEPI, INTU, TIF, BODY-OLD, AAN, ANF

     In the week ended June 24, we recorded 530 open-market insider trades at 310 companies having a total value of $963.4 million. Transaction dollar volume was 60.4% lower than the previous week and 30.4% higher when compared to insider trading activity a year ago. Purchases accounted for 20.4% of all open-market trades last week. Our insider sell-to-buy ratio, which excludes derivative conversions and certain other types of transactions, ended the week at 3.91, up from a previous reading of 3.15. On average, a sell-to-buy ratio below 4 is considered bullish, while readings above 7 are bearish. However, we continue to advocate caution in the short term. Upside will be limited as the global recovery loses steam and corporate profit margins peak, and there remain significant risks stemming from the Eurozone.
