The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At HHG Capital

That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of US$9.92. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when an insider has purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price.
