The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Audioboom Group

Notably, that recent purchase by David Evans is the biggest insider purchase of Audioboom Group shares that we’ve seen in the last year. That means that even when the share price was higher than UK£2.48 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company’s future. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid UK£272k for 119.93k shares. On the other hand they divested 48000 shares, for UK£130k.
