Fulton Financial Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The insider David Campbell made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for US$175k worth of shares at a price of US$17.00 each. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of US$15.48. Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. It is encouraging to see an insider paid above the current price for shares, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels. David Campbell was the only individual insider to buy during the last year.

Insider Ownership of Fulton Financial

Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders.

This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
