One Insignia Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:ISIG) insider upped their stake by 63% in the previous year

From what we can see, insiders were net buyers in Insignia Systems, Inc.'s (NASDAQ:ISIG ) during the past 12 months. That is, insiders acquired the stock in greater numbers than they sold it.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Insignia Systems

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by insider David Lazar for US$280k worth of shares, at about US$8.00 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of US$5.94. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. To us, it's very important to consider the price insiders pay for shares. 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 Lazar was the only individual insider to buy during the last year.

Insider Ownership

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. Insiders own 11% of Insignia Systems shares, worth about US$1.1m, according to our data. Whilst better than nothing, we're not overly impressed by these holdings.

So What Does This Data Suggest About Insignia Systems Insiders?

There haven't been any insider transactions in the last three months -- that doesn't mean much. On a brighter note, the transactions over the last year are encouraging. We'd like to see bigger individual holdings. However, we don't see anything to make us think Insignia Systems insiders are doubting the company. While we like knowing what's going on with the insider's ownership and transactions, we make sure to also consider what risks are facing a stock before making any investment decision. Case in point: We've spotted 3 warning signs for Insignia Systems you should be aware of, and 2 of these don't sit too well with us.
