    Why no more insider buys? If they bought at $17-19

    Shouldn't they buy more now with 40% discount from just 1.5 months ago?

    • For the love of God, please don't let any insider buy ... if they do, we are going to $5 PPS.
      If history tells us one thing, WLT insiders are PERFECT CONTRARIAN INDICATORS - they buy, the stock falls. Heck, they have been buying from $70s!!!

      I pray they don't buy! Pray with me ...

    • In the period between end of quarter and the earnings announcement they are generally prohibited from buying/selling shares.

      • Unless, they have access to material, Non-public information the insiders are free to trade.

        Some examples of material news...

        Positive Insider News:
        1) Some sort of deal, M&A or refinancing options (Capital infusion) or privatization.
        2) Pre-announcement of better than expected earnings.

        Negative Insider News:
        1) Suspension of dividend
        2) Lower earnings estimate

        Any of the above or other factors could prevent the insiders from Buying/Selling securities, We really can't tell if it a good thing or a bad thing until we get the complete scoop.

    • I believe insider buys just prior to a buyout be inappropriate.
