The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At ICC Holdings

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when VP & Chief Financial Officer Michael Smith bought US$63k worth of shares at a price of US$15.90 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, at around the current price, which is US$16.50. That means they have been optimistic about the company in the past, though they may have changed their mind. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it's a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value. The good news for ICC Holdings share holders is that an insider was buying at near the current price. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was Michael Smith.
