Potential Mader Group Limited (ASX:MAD) shareholders may wish to note that the Non-Executive Director, Craig Burton, recently bought AU$181k worth of stock, paying AU$0.90 for each share. However, it only increased shareholding by a small percentage, and it wasn't a huge purchase by absolute value, either.

Mader Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In fact, the recent purchase by Non-Executive Director Craig Burton was not their only acquisition of Mader Group shares this year. Earlier in the year, they paid AU$0.66 per share in a AU$1.1m purchase. Although we like to see insider buying, we note that this large purchase was at significantly below the recent price of AU$0.91. Because it occurred at a lower valuation, it doesn't tell us much about whether insiders might find today's price attractive.
