Significant insider buying in a company by the people most knowledgeable of the company’s prospects in the near future, can be a good sign. It should be used alongside other investment criteria and not alone as a sure sign to invest. Insiders can sell shares for many different reasons, but only buy believing the share price will appreciate.

 

The below chart shows director buys and sells per week, the data lags a couple of weeks as directors have five business days to inform the market after a trade. As you can see director buys increased markedly during the Covid-19 downturn. Director trade activity is usually subdued around Christmas and New year and during reporting season.

 

 

Please see below table for the latest relevant Australian share market director trades. Only FPO on-market trades and some off-market trades that are worth noting are counted. Where there are multiple trades on different dates by the one director in the same Appendix 3Y notice, they are combined together, using the latest date. Trades under $5000 are not counted. Companies have five business days to advise the ASX of any director trades. The date below is the actual trade date. For more information on trades see company announcement.
