The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Legend Mining

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by MD & Director Mark Wilson for AU$254k worth of shares, at about AU$0.051 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than AU$0.05 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. 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. It is encouraging to see an insider paid above the current price for shares, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels. Mark Wilson was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

Does Legend Mining Boast High Insider Ownership?

Many investors like to check how much of a company is owned by insiders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. From our data, it seems that Legend Mining insiders own 8.2% of the company, worth about AU$11m. We do note, however, it is possible insiders have an indirect interest through a private company or other corporate structure. Overall, this level of ownership isn't that impressive, but it's certainly better than nothing!

So What Does This Data Suggest About Legend Mining Insiders?

The fact that there have been no Legend Mining insider transactions recently certainly doesn't bother us. However, our analysis of transactions over the last year is heartening. Insiders own shares in Legend Mining and we see no evidence to suggest they are worried about the future. While we like knowing what's going on with the insider's ownership and transactions, we make sure to also consider what risks are facing a stock before making any investment decision. Every company has risks, and we've spotted 3 warning signs for Legend Mining (of which 1 is a bit unpleasant!) you should know about.
