Shares Bought/Sold By Insiders

View Financial Glossary Index

Definition

Shares bought by insiders refers to the number of shares bought by insiders over the course of a month.

For example, the number of shares bought by insiders on July 31st would be the monthly total for July. If the CEO was the only insider to buy shares in the month of July and they bought 100 shares, the July 31st data point would be equal to 100.

Shares sold by insiders would be the opposite.

For example, the number of shares sold by insiders on May 31st would be the monthly total for May. If the CEO was the only insider to sell shares in the month of July and they sold 100 shares, the July 31st data point would be equal to 100.

These metrics are updated monthly.
