Critical Stocks Alerts: Significant Insider Trade in Ascena Retail Group, Dyax Corp, United Therapeutics Corp, Bank of America, Citigroup, and Exxon Mobil

Jan 19, 2016, 09:00 ET from

PHOENIX, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- (PSI) released stock alert on companies with significant trade made by company insiders such as CEO, CFO, and senior officers. When a company catches your attention, it is a good idea to start your research with the larger transaction values first.

The importance of the relative size of an insider's purchase should not be downplayed in favor of the actual dollar value of the trade. Most insiders are not chairmen with multi-million-dollar bonuses. The average vice president and chief financial officer at a company may make a comfortable living, but for many a $10,000 trade is still serious money. The transaction value may look puny beside all the other trades you see on a given day, but it does not mean it is not significant.
One should give more credence to the 5,000-share purchase by a vice president if it doubles his total holdings compared to a 50,000-share purchase by a chairman who may have millions of shares. Many of the vice president's investments are very well representing a larger share of his net worth and the rest of us should be aware when insiders are investing in this manner.
