The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services

In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the Independent Director, Rama Bijapurkar, sold ₹5.4m worth of shares at a price of ₹181 per share. That means that an insider was selling shares at slightly below the current price (₹204). When an insider sells below the current price, it suggests that they considered that lower price to be fair. That makes us wonder what they think of the (higher) recent valuation. 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. It is worth noting that this sale was only 50% of Rama Bijapurkar's holding.
