While insider transactions can provide valuable insights for investors, they should not be the sole basis for investment decisions. It is important to note that insider transactions must be reported within two business days of the transaction through a Form 4 filing.
Investors are advised to focus on transactions that occur in the open market, as indicated in Table I of the Form 4 filing. A purchase is indicated by a P in Box 3, while an S indicates a sale. Transaction code C signifies the conversion of an option, while transaction code A suggests that the insider may have been compelled to sell shares in order to receive compensation promised upon employment by the company.
It is worth noting that when an insider makes a new purchase, it is often interpreted as a bullish signal, indicating that the stock is expected to rise. Conversely, insider sells can be made for a variety of reasons and may not necessarily imply that the seller believes the stock will decline.
