Insiders who acquired ₹180k worth of Vaxtex Cotfab Limited's (NSE:VCL) stock at an average price of ₹10.57 in the past 12 months may be dismayed by the recent 30% price decline. Insiders purchase with the hope of seeing their investments increase in value over time. However, due to recent losses, their initial investment is now only worth ₹130k, which is not great.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
