The recent price decline of 13% in NDR Auto Components Limited's (NSE:NDRAUTO) stock may have disappointed insiders who bought ₹3.0m worth of shares at an average price of ₹364 in the past 12 months. This is not good as insiders invest based on expectations that their money will appreciate over time. However, as a result of recent losses, their original investment is now worth only ₹3.0m.
