Some Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:RVNC) shareholders may be a little concerned to see that the CEO & Director, Mark Foley, recently sold a substantial US$2.2m worth of stock at a price of US$31.59 per share. However, it's crucial to note that they remain very much invested in the stock and that sale only reduced their holding by 7.0%.

Revance Therapeutics Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Notably, that recent sale by Mark Foley is the biggest insider sale of Revance Therapeutics shares that we've seen in the last year. So it's clear an insider wanted to take some cash off the table, even slightly below the current price of US$32.13. 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 7.0% of Mark Foley's holding.
