The President, Pasquale Romano, made the biggest insider sale in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for US$7.4m worth of shares at a price of US$23.50 each. While insider selling is a negative, to us, it is more negative if the shares are sold at a lower price. The silver lining is that this sell-down took place above the latest price (US$19.91).
