Stingray Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In fact, the recent purchase by Independent Chairman Mark Pathy was not their only acquisition of Stingray Group shares this year. They previously made an even bigger purchase of CA$646k worth of shares at a price of CA$7.10 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of CA$7.35. Of course they may have changed their mind. But this suggests they are optimistic. While we always like to see insider buying, it's less meaningful if the purchases were made at much lower prices, as the opportunity they saw may have passed.
