C4 Therapeutics Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The CEO, President & Director Andrew Hirsch made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for US$84k worth of shares at a price of US$8.40 each. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of US$8.77. That means they have been optimistic about the company in the past, though they may have changed their mind. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it's a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value. The good news for C4 Therapeutics share holders is that an insider was buying at near the current price. Andrew Hirsch was the only individual insider to buy during the last year.
