Navarre Minerals Limited (ASX:NML) shareholders (or potential shareholders) will be happy to see that insider Stephen Nordstrom recently bought a whopping AU$1.6m worth of stock, at a price of AU$0.14.

Navarre Minerals Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In fact, the recent purchase by insider Stephen Nordstrom was not their only acquisition of Navarre Minerals shares this year. Earlier in the year, they paid AU$0.11 per share in a AU$1.8m purchase. Although we like to see insider buying, we note that this large purchase was at significantly below the recent price of AU$0.18. Because it occurred at a lower valuation, it doesn't tell us much about whether insiders might find today's price attractive.

In the last twelve months insiders purchased 30.70m shares for AU$3.5m. On the other hand they divested 800.00k shares, for AU$107k. Overall, Navarre Minerals insiders were net buyers during the last year. You can see the insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last year depicted in the chart below.

Insider Ownership of Navarre Minerals

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. It appears that Navarre Minerals insiders own 15% of the company, worth about AU$15m. We've certainly seen higher levels of insider ownership elsewhere, but these holdings are enough to suggest alignment between insiders and the other shareholders.

So What Do The Navarre Minerals Insider Transactions Indicate?

It's certainly positive to see the recent insider purchases. We also take confidence from the longer term picture of insider transactions. However, we note that the company didn't make a profit over the last twelve months, which makes us cautious. Given that insiders also own a fair bit of Navarre Minerals we think they are probably pretty confident of a bright future. While we like knowing what's going on with the insider's ownership and transactions, we make sure to also consider what risks are facing a stock before making any investment decision.
