Summary

Tables of the top insider purchases and sales filed with the SEC on 11/4/19, 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 on the Title date. Dollar value is only the most basic metric to assess the "Significance" of an insider transaction, however, and often not even the most important one.

When a new insider transaction occurs, our programs mathematically score the significance of the company's 3-month insider profile based on numerous criteria programmed into our expert system.

Stocks that achieve an InsiderInsights Company Rating of "Significant" and "Leaning" Bullish or Bearish have been independently validated to generate alpha as a group and should be considered by investors looking for new long and short investments.

Seasonal Note: Form 4 filing volumes are now rising off a seasonal low point. The number of insider trades will continue increasing into November and stay strong until the third week of December. We're entering high season for using insider data in the investing process.

On Today's Tables:

Insider trades were rated Significant at:

  • Tile Shop (TTS)
  • Simmons First National (SFNC)
  • Ares Capital (ARCC)
  • ANGI Homeservices (ANGI)
  • Assured Guaranty (AGO)

  • Goosehead Insurance (GSHD)
  • Facebook (FB)
  • Crocs (CROX)

There is an IPO or Known Corporate Action at:

  • Rapt Therapeutics (RAPT)
  • Oyster Point Pharma (OYST)

It's difficult to argue significance for most transactions made during IPOs or when insiders make trades during a known corporate action.
