Despite the fact that Fulu Holdings Limited's (HKG:2101) value has dropped 10% in the last week insiders who sold CN¥747k worth of stock in the past 12 months have had less success. Given that the average selling price of CN¥4.98 is still lower than the current share price, insiders would probably have been better off keeping their shares.
While insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Fulu Holdings
In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the insider, Feng Mao, sold HK$747k worth of shares at a price of HK$4.98 per share.

So it may not tell us anything about how insiders feel about the current share price. Feng Mao was the only individual insider to sell over the last year.
