Personally puzzled regarding why on good days for the market like today, MSFT has been faring poorly - and prompted by some of the spam headlines on this board regarding insider activity - I whimsically decided to look at recent insider transactions.
Insider sales in the last six months have been high - over 5% of the shares held by insiders. And the largest blocks of those sales have come from Bill Gates himself.
To me, this is more of a yellow flag than a red one, as insiders can have more reasons to sell than solely their assessment of a company's future prospects. But, in light of institutional selling also being high, I am mulling over what the big traders may be thinking that I am not.
