Insider buying declined again last week with insiders buying $24.71 million of stock compared to $55.32 million in the week prior. Selling also declined with insiders selling $295.56 million of stock last week compared to $489.91 million in the week prior. Insider transactions are likely to stay muted over the next week or two as we get into the thick of earnings season.
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 11.96. In other words, insiders sold almost 12 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 8.85.
