INSPECS Group Insiders Placed Bullish Bets Worth UK£456k

It is usually uneventful when a single insider buys stock. However, When quite a few insiders buy shares, as it happened in INSPECS Group plc's (LON:SPEC) case, it's fantastic news for shareholders.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At INSPECS Group

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Founder & Executive Chairman Robin Totterman for UK£400k worth of shares, at about UK£0.48 per share. Even though the purchase was made at a significantly lower price than the recent price (UK£0.85), we still think insider buying is a positive. Because the shares were purchased at a lower price, this particular buy doesn't tell us much about how insiders feel about the current share price.
