Daily Insider Ratings Round Up 6/2/17: BTU, MCC, TWNK. SEAS, AVT, MATR

About: Medley Capital (MCC), BTU, Includes: AVT, MATR, SEAS, TWNK
by: InsiderInsights

Tables of the top insider purchases and sales filed with the SEC on 6/2/17, 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.

InsiderInsights Daily Round Up articles rate the "Significance" of the top 10 dollar value insider purchases and sales filed at the SEC yesterday, so investors can efficiently identify potential new investments and follow stocks they already own. Dollar value is only one metric to assess the significance of an insider transaction, however, and there are many more significant insider trades with lower dollar values on any given day, as illustrated in our Daily Ratings Reports.

It takes over a million lines of code programming and our decades of experience analyzing insider transactions for us to be able to harvest, analyze, and effectively rate insider transactions in real time. Our programs mathematically score the significance of a company's insider profile based on numerous criteria, but we relay our research conclusions in simple language below.

Stocks that achieve an InsiderInsights Company Rating of "Significant" and "Nearly Significant" (meaning "Leaning Bullish or Bearish") have been independently validated to generate alpha as a group. Only stocks that achieve those Ratings on the tables below are highlighted in our article headlines, and have our articles linked to their Seeking Alpha company profiles.

The intention of our Round Up articles is to both separate real insider investment intelligence from time-wasting noise and to educate investors that - though insider transactions are indeed an excellent source of investment intelligence - it takes much more analysis than screening by dollar values to make money from insider data.

Seasonal Note: Insider filing volumes are in a seasonal high period and will remain strong until the final week of June.
