As a general rule, insider buying shows management’s confidence in the company, and is considered a bullish sign—in other words a sign that stock prices are likely to go up. Conversely, insider selling is considered bearish—those in the know may be off loading their stocks in an expectation that prices will soon fall. So it pays to keep an eye on the activities of insiders.
Studies have shown that prompt and timely dissemination of insider transactions are profitable for investors, as insiders tend to beat the market. The odds in favor of an insider purchase being followed by further purchases are three times greater than the odds of a purchase followed by a sale.

The SunOpta Nominating and Governance Committee has been working to identify director candidates who can add additional operating, industry and capital markets experience and expertise to the Board of Directors. Encouraged by Tourbillon Capital Partners and other major shareholders, SunOpta also announced today that its Board of Directors has hired Russell Reynolds Associates, a global executive search, assessment and succession planning firm, to assist in identifying director candidates, including potential candidates that have been brought forward by shareholders.
Because of the constructive relationship between Tourbillon and management and the signs of shareholder discontent, the parties will likely come to an amicable resolution. But if it does become confrontational, Tourbillon will have the benefit of SunOpta’s shareholder-friendly bylaws, which include the right for 5% of shareholders to call a special meeting where directors can be removed.
