Stocks Alerts for Trades Made By CEO, CFO, and Directors in Bank Of America, Alcoa Inc, Union Pacific Corp, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, and JP Morgan Chase

PHOENIX, Jan. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- (PSI) released FREE insider trading reports for US market investors to track the following active stocks and penny stocksBank Of America (NYSE: BAC), Alcoa Inc. (NYSE: AA), Union Pacific Corp. (NYSE: UNP), Citigroup (NYSE: C), Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE: WFC), and JP Morgan Chase (NYSE: JPM).

When an insider such as company CEO, CFO, Director, or C-Level Officer exercises options on his or her penny stocks, he or she sometimes exercises and sells several lots within a certain time frame. One of the reasons is the insider may not have enough money to exercise all the options at once.

If an insider's shares are trading in the open market for $15 (obviously not penny stocks) and the insider has the options to buy 20,000 shares of stock from the company for $10, he or she has $100,000 risk-free capital gain coming out but must still pay up $200,000 to the company to get that profit. That's a fair amount of money to have on hand. The insider may first choose to exercise only 5,000 options, and then use the profit from the sale to exercise more options and continue doing that until all the options have been cashed in.

Exercising options piecemeal like this can make a pretty messy insider history for penny stocks or any stock with lots of selling. It might be wrong if people had viewed this as a negative indicator of the stock's future prospects. An exception is when an insider's options are getting ready to expire, the insiders might exercise them but not sell the stocks immediately, and this is a valid positive signal.
