The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At HEICO

In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the Independent Director, Julie Neitzel, sold US$131k worth of shares at a price of US$134 per share. So what is clear is that an insider saw fit to sell at around the current price of US$124. We generally don't like to see insider selling, but the lower the sale price, the more it concerns us. We note that this sale took place at around the current price, so it isn't a major concern, though it's hardly a good sign. Notably Julie Neitzel was also the biggest buyer, having purchased US$1.1m worth of shares.

Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid US$1.1m for 9.49k shares. But insiders sold 1.47k shares worth US$197k. In total, HEICO insiders bought more than they sold over the last year.

Insider Ownership of HEICO

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. HEICO insiders own about US$2.2b worth of shares (which is 14% of the company). This kind of significant ownership by insiders does generally increase the chance that the company is run in the interest of all shareholders.
