RooLife Group Ltd (ASX:RLG) drops to AU$7.0m and insiders who purchased earlier this year lose another AU$16k
The recent price decline of 23% in RooLife Group Ltd's (ASX:RLG) stock may have disappointed insiders who bought AU$188k worth of shares at an average price of AU$0.011 in the past 12 months. This is not good as insiders invest based on expectations that their money will appreciate over time. However, as a result of recent losses, their original investment is now worth only AU$172k.
While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.
