Insider Buying: The Sonam Clock Limited (NSE:SONAMCLOCK) Chairman & MD Just Bought ₹1.0m Worth Of Shares

Even if it’s not a huge purchase, we think it was good to see that Jayeshbhai Shah, the Chairman & MD of Sonam Clock Limited (NSE:SONAMCLOCK) recently shelled out ₹1.0m to buy stock, at ₹38.50 per share. However, we do note that it only increased their holding by 0.4%, and it wasn’t a huge purchase by absolute value, either.

Sonam Clock Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Notably, that recent purchase by Jayeshbhai Shah is the biggest insider purchase of Sonam Clock shares that we’ve seen in the last year. That implies that an insider found the current price of ₹38.50 per share to be enticing. 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. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it’s a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value. The good news for Sonam Clock share holders is that an insider was buying at near the current price. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was Jayeshbhai Shah.
