Daily Round Up: 7/25/14

Includes: BK, NHF, PDI, TUBE
by: InsiderInsights


Tables of the top insider purchases and sales filed with the SEC on Friday, July 25, 2014, based on dollar value.

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

Proprietary Insider Company Ratings are further given for selected companies.

I cannot repeat enough that dollar value is only one metric to assess the significance of an insider transaction. InsiderInsights calculates Insider Filer Statistics in real time, and formulates Insider Company Ratings based on numerous behavioral factors, so our clients can separate real investment intelligence from time-wasting noise.

On Today's Tables:

Insider trades were rated Significant at :

  • Nexpoint Cr St Fd (NYSE:NHF), and;
  • Pimco Dyn Inc Fd (NYSE:PDI).

Insider trades were rated Nearly Significant at:

  • Bank of NY (NYSE:BK).

Insider trades were considered Insignificant at:

  • Wilshire Bancorp (WIBC);
  • Rand Capital (NASDAQ:RAND);
  • Mattersight (NASDAQ:MATR);
  • La Jolla Pharm (OTC:LJPC);
  • Kewaunee Scientific (NASDAQ:KEQU);
  • Hanmi Financial (NASDAQ:HAFC);
  • Seagate Tech (NASDAQ:STX);
  • Silvercrest Asset Mgt (NASDAQ:SAMG);
  • Manpowergroup (NYSE:MAN);
  • Karyopharm (NASDAQ:KPTI);
  • Gold Resource (NGORO);
  • Facebook (NASDAQ:FB);
  • Emerge Energy (NYSE:EMES), and;
  • Salesforce Com (NYSE:CRM).

There is a Conflicted Insider Signal at:

  • Hittite Microwave (NASDAQ:HITT).

The Insider Purchases at Tubemogul (NASDAQ:TUBE) were associated with its recent IPO. These were nice to see--especially since William Elmore's well-consider Foundation Capital is one of the institutions filing a substantial long position in the stock. But it's still difficult to argue significance for transactions by insiders of unseasoned shares.

An important note from Jonathan Moreland, founder of

In a victory for common sense, it's been proven profitable -- by both academic studies and (more importantly) the experience of your fellow professional investors -- to monitor the trading behavior of company executives, directors, and large shareholders in the stocks of firms of which they're registered as "insiders".

Please note, however, that the lists above are strictly factual; they are not buy and sell recommendations.

At, our clients find new investment ideas every day using more intricate insider screens to determine where they should focus their subsequent fundamental and technical analysis. And while stocks don't (or shouldn't) move up or down based on insider activity alone, insiders tend to be profitable indicators of when real stock-moving events like earnings surprises, corporate actions, and new products may be in the offing.

So use these daily articles as the initial research tools they are meant to be, and click the links in the tables to analyze a company's or insider's full insider history. Also feel free to email us with any questions on our proprietary insider data, filer statistics, and company ratings.

I should also relay that you could have seen the trades on today's Daily Round Up tables within hours of being filed, by signing up for our Free Intra-Day Top Trades Alerts.
