Insiders who bought Hillman Solutions Corp. (NASDAQ:HLMN) in the last 12 months may probably not pay attention to the stock's recent 9.4% drop. Even after accounting for the recent loss, the US$1.7m worth of stock purchased by them is now worth US$1.7m or in other words, their investment continues to give good returns.

While insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
