Even though Taal Distributed Information Technologies Inc. (CSE:TAAL) stock gained 24% last week, insiders who sold CA$129k worth of stock over the past year are probably better off. Selling at an average price of CA$4.24, which is higher than the current price might have been the right call as holding on to stock would have meant their investment would be worth less now than it was at the time of sale.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.
