Insider buying declined sharply last week with insiders buying just $16.43 million of stock compared to $40.18 million in the week prior. Selling on the other hand increased with insiders selling $936.53 million of stock last week compared to $521.34 million in the week prior.
Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week went up to 57. In other words, insiders sold 57 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 12.98.

Quarterly Review and Outlook, Fourth Quarter 2014
by Van R. Hoisington and Lacy H. Hunt, Hoisington Asset Management
“No stock-market crash announced bad times. The depression rather made its presence felt with the serial crashes of dozens of commodity markets. To the affected producers and consumers, the declines were immediate and newsworthy, but they failed to seize the national attention. Certainly, they made no deep impression at the Federal Reserve.” -Thus wrote author James Grant in his latest thoroughly researched and well-penned book, The Forgotten Depression (1921: The Crash That Cured Itself).
