We note that a TCNS Clothing Co. Limited (NSE:TCNSBRANDS) insider, Dharmender Kumar, recently sold ₹6.8m worth of stock for ₹522 per share. It might not be a huge sale, but it did reduce their holding size 11%, hardly encouraging.
TCNS Clothing Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the insider, Arindam Chakravorty, sold ₹8.4m worth of shares at a price of ₹359 per share. That means that an insider was selling shares at slightly below the current price (₹452). We generally consider it a negative if insiders have been selling, especially if they did so below the current price, because it implies that they considered a lower price to be reasonable. While insider selling is not a positive sign, we can't be sure if it does mean insiders think the shares are fully valued, so it's only a weak sign. This single sale was just 16% of Arindam Chakravorty's stake.
In the last year TCNS Clothing insiders didn't buy any company stock. You can see the insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last year depicted in the chart below.

Does TCNS Clothing Boast High Insider Ownership?
For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. It's great to see that TCNS Clothing insiders own 44% of the company, worth about ₹12b. I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
