Insider Selling

A couple of articles today highlight a widespread pattern of insiders selling stock in their companies.  Mark Hulbert at Market Watch here says, "Monday afternoon, Vickers reported that the ratio of insider selling to insider buying last week was 4.16-to-1, the highest the ratio has been since October 2007."  Vickers Weekly Insider Report is published by Argus Research.

The Pragmatic Capitalist reports, that if you leave out a single purchase by one director (John Roth of specialty retailer HH Gregg) who invested $16.5 million in his own company, in recent weeks sales by insiders been greater than buys by a ratio of 30:1.  Read this report here.
