The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Haitian International Holdings

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Senior VP of Sales & Marketing and Executive Director Jianfeng Zhang bought HK$7.8m worth of shares at a price of HK$19.47 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of HK$19.88. Of course they may have changed their mind. But this suggests they are optimistic.
