Daily Insider Ratings Round Up 8/15/18

InsiderInsights‘ Daily Round Up articles rate the „significance“ of the top 10 dollar value insider purchases and sales filed at the SEC on the Title date. Dollar value is only the most basic metric to assess the significance of an insider transaction, however, and there are many more „Significant“ insider trades with lower dollar values every day in our comprehensive Daily Insider Ratings Reports, which also reach clients before the market opens each morning. In contrast, these free Round-Up articles are delayed.

We employ over a million lines of code programming our decades of experience analyzing insider transactions to harvest, analyze, and profitably rate insider transactions in real time. When a new insider transaction occurs, our programs mathematically score the significance of the company’s 3-month insider profile based on numerous criteria.

Stocks that achieve an InsiderInsights Company Rating of „Significant“ and „Nearly Significant“ have been independently validated to generate alpha as a group.

The intention of our Round Up articles is to both separate real insider investment intelligence from time-wasting noise, and to educate investors that — though insider transactions are indeed an excellent source of investment intelligence — it takes much more analysis than screening by dollar values to make money from insider data.

Seasonal Note: We’re entering another particularly fertile period for using insider data in your investment process, as companies open trading windows to their insiders again after earnings are released. The volume of Form 4s is already increasing, will ramp up throughout August, and stay strong until the end of September.
