Insiders who purchased XPON Technologies Group Limited (ASX:XPN) earlier this year lose an additional AU$17k as the stock sinks to AU$0.12
The recent 15% drop in XPON Technologies Group Limited's (ASX:XPN) stock could come as a blow to insiders who purchased AU$127k worth of stock at an average buy price of AU$0.13 over the past 12 months. Insiders buy with the expectation to see their investments rise in value over a period of time. However, recent losses have rendered their above investment worth AU$109k which is not ideal.
While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
