I noticed something interesting between three of these gaming companies' insider transactions. BYI's CEO recently did a market order for 25,000 shares and their price is much higher...his purchase looks like it made the BYI price jump from 47 to 49. They don't seem to have a lot of insider acquisitions at $0 per share. In contrast, if you look at the recent acquisitions for WMS, it appears that the insider acquisitions are all stock awards at $0; or if you look farther back, there were some awarded options excercised. IGT looks like a mixed bag.
Am I missing something? Have there been any recent insider acquisitions in either WMS or IGT at market price? Is that usual, or is BYI unusual?
So, do you think there will be an insider selloff of WMS and price drop once their 'blackout period' is over?
Insider transactions is not as important as most feel they are.If it was you could just mirror their actions and have an edge in the stock market. The only trade that they make that could tell you something, is when insiders are selling a stock that is depressed,this could be sign that thing could get worse .
