Some Angel Broking Limited (NSE:ANGELBRKG) shareholders may be a little concerned to see that insider Juhi Agrawal recently sold a substantial ₹61m worth of stock at a price of ₹677 per share. Probably the most concerning element of the whole transaction is that the disposal amounted to 90% of their entire holding.
Angel Broking Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
Notably, that recent sale by Juhi Agrawal is the biggest insider sale of Angel Broking shares that we've seen in the last year. So what is clear is that an insider saw fit to sell at around the current price of ₹659. While we don't usually like to see insider selling, it's more concerning if the sales take place at a lower price. In this case, the big sale took place at around the current price, so it's not too bad (but it's still not a positive).

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders.

I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
