Simply Wall St

Even if it's not a huge purchase, we think it was good to see that Charles Wilken, the Head of Investment Banking of Mangold Fondkommission AB (STO:MANG) recently shelled out kr469k to buy stock, at kr626 per share. However, we do note that it only increased their holding by 5.4%, and it wasn't a huge purchase by absolute value, either.

Mangold Fondkommission Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when CEO & MD Per-Anders Tammerlöv bought kr2.4m worth of shares at a price of kr630 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of kr760. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. While we always like to see insider buying, it's less meaningful if the purchases were made at much lower prices, as the opportunity they saw may have passed. In this case we're pleased to report that the insider purchases were made at close to current prices. We note that Per-Anders Tammerlöv was both the biggest buyer and the biggest seller.

Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid kr4.9m for 7854 shares. But insiders sold 500 shares worth kr331k. Overall, Mangold Fondkommission insiders were net buyers last year.
