We wouldn’t blame CACI International Inc (NYSE:CACI) shareholders if they were a little worried about the fact that Kenneth Asbury, a company insider, recently netted about US$3.0m selling shares at an average price of US$210. That sale reduced their total holding by 24.1% which is hardly insignificant, but far from the worst we’ve seen.
The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At CACI International
In fact, the recent sale by insider Kenneth Asbury was not their only sale of CACI International shares this year. Earlier in the year, they fetched US$215 per share in a -US$3.0m sale. That means that even when the share price was slightly below the current price of US$216, an insider wanted to cash in some shares. When an insider sells below the current price, it suggests that they considered that lower price to be fair. That makes us wonder what they think of the (higher) recent valuation. Please do note, however, that sellers may have a variety of reasons for selling, so we don’t know for sure what they think of the stock price. We note that the biggest single sale was only 24.1% of Kenneth Asbury’s holding.
