Daily Round Up 4/20/17: BTU, IMH, PACW, OPK, DKL

by: InsiderInsights


Tables of the top insider purchases and sales filed with the SEC on 4/20/17, 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 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 in a slow period,
as more companies close trading windows to their executives until March-quarter earnings are released. The volume of insider trades will pick up again in the first week of May, and stay strong until the final week of June.

  • PacWest Bancorp (NASDAQ:PACW);
  • OPKO Health (NYSEMKT:OPK);
