Bullish Tlou Energy Insiders Loaded Up On AU$10.3m Of Stock

Multiple insiders secured a larger position in Tlou Energy Limited (ASX:TOU) shares over the last 12 months. This is reassuring as this suggests that insiders have increased optimism about the company's prospects.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.

Check out our latest analysis for Tlou Energy

Tlou Energy Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when insider Ian Campbell bought AU$5.0m worth of shares at a price of AU$0.035 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, even at a higher price than the current share price (being AU$0.03). While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when insiders have purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price.
