Why are insider trading important?
Insider trading should not be used primarily in making an investment decision, but an insider trading can be a big factor in the decision to invest.
Insiders who buy stocks after a massive sell-off may indicate an insider’s long-term belief in the success of the company; Insiders buying stocks at new highs can be an indication that the executive doesn’t think the stock is overvalued. Conversely, insiders selling stocks at new lows can potentially indicate some sort of capitulation moment. Insiders selling to new highs may indicate that the executive wants to “take profit” and “lock in a gain”.
Important transaction codes
Investors prefer to focus on transactions that take place in the open market, shown in Form 4 with codes P on purchase and S for sale. A transaction in the open market means that the insider entered the market of their own accord and made an active decision about the potential course of a company and its actions for the future.
Additional transaction codes P Where S are not relatively important because they are rarely linked to a decision of the executive. For example, the transaction code A indicates that an insider is forced to sell shares to obtain compensation. In addition, the transaction code VS indicates the conversion of an option.
