The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Share India Securities

In fact, the recent sale by Chief Financial Officer Vijay Rana was not their only sale of Share India Securities shares this year. Earlier in the year, they fetched ₹179 per share in a -₹5.1m sale. That means that even when the share price was below the current price of ₹470, an insider wanted to cash in some shares. As a general rule we consider it to be discouraging when insiders are selling below the current price, because it suggests they were happy with a lower 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 36% of Vijay Rana's holding.

Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid ₹15m for 81.49k shares. But they sold 38.73k shares for ₹9.8m. In total, Share India Securities insiders bought more than they sold over the last year.

Insider Ownership

Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. Share India Securities insiders own 86% of the company, currently worth about ₹13b based on the recent share price. I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
