  44. How seriously should we consider insider trading? (01/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Good morning all, As part of DD, I usually take a look at the insider buys and sells of a company. Usually, if I see quite a few buys and not a lot of insider trading in general, I take it as a bit of confirmation on top of my initial research. My question is, how deeply should we consider these insider trades? If we see someone like a company director selling off a few shares, should we consider it a bad thing? Of course, many sell off perhaps because they need money here and there (for eg, Jeff Bezos with Amazon a few months back), but at what stage does the insider activity become a negative indicator of the company?   submitted by   /u/maximalsimplicity [link]   [comments]
