Insider Ownership of GBM Resources

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. It appears that GBM Resources insiders own 34% of the company, worth about AU$4.6m. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.

So What Do The GBM Resources Insider Transactions Indicate?

It's certainly positive to see the recent insider purchase. And the longer term insider transactions also give us confidence. But on the other hand, the company made a loss last year, which makes us a little cautious. When combined with notable insider ownership, these factors suggest GBM Resources insiders are well aligned, and that they may think the share price is too low. Along with insider transactions, I recommend checking if GBM Resources is growing revenue. This free chart of historic revenue and earnings should make that easy.
