Insider Trading Activity – Follow the Smart Money
Insider trading refers to when a company’s executives, board of directors, and/or major shareholders buy or sell company stock based on non-public company information. Being aware of insider trades can help identify what insiders (i.e., smart money) think will happen in the future. For example, if a significant number of shares are bought before an earnings announcement or before the results of a drug trial are publicly released, it could suggest that insiders think the company is about to release some good news, and that the share price will rise shortly. Barchart’s Insider Trading Activity page shows all insider trading recorded for the last 5 calendar days, with the option to filter by a specific transaction date, transaction type, or dollar amount of the transaction.
