Insider buying increased last week with insiders buying $226.99 million of stock compared to $45.88 million in the week prior. Selling also increased with insiders selling $594.85 million of stock last week compared to $442.94 million in the week prior. A large part of the insider buying this week was on account of Carl Icahn purchasing a large position in liquefied natural gas company Cheniere Energy (LNG).
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 dropped to 2.62. In other words, insiders sold almost 3 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares favorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 9.65.
