Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that Rakesh Bhageria, who is a company insider, recently bought ₹1.6m worth of stock, for ₹258 per share. However, it only increased their shares held by 2.9%, and it wasn't a huge purchase by absolute value, either.
Bhageria Industries Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Non-Executive Independent Director Surendra Gupta bought ₹25m worth of shares at a price of ₹250 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of ₹251. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. We do always like to see insider buying, but it is worth noting if those purchases were made at well below today's share price, as the discount to value may have narrowed with the rising price. Happily, the Bhageria Industries insiders decided to buy shares at close to current prices. We note that Surendra Gupta was both the biggest buyer and the biggest seller.
Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid ₹44m for 194.52k shares. But they sold 18.00k shares for ₹3.8m. In the last twelve months there was more buying than selling by Bhageria Industries insiders. Their average price was about ₹224. It is certainly positive to see that insiders have invested their own money in the company. But we must note that the investments were made at well below today's share price.
