The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Dingyi Group Investment

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the CEO & Executive Director, Xiaonong Su, for HK$20m worth of shares, at about HK$0.80 per share. While we don't usually like to see insider selling, it's more concerning if the sales take place at a lower price. It's of some comfort that this sale was conducted at a price well above the current share price, which is HK$0.25. So it is hard to draw any strong conclusion from it. Xiaonong Su was the only individual insider to sell shares in the last twelve months.
