Insider buying and selling activities are important for investors to pay attention to. While insiders sell for many reasons, including taxes, it doesn’t always send the right message to investors when the top person is selling. On the opposite side, insiders buy for one reason – because they feel the stock is too cheap, although that doesn’t necessarily mean they are right. On either side of the trade, it is always important to pay attention to the action, especially from the top brass.
