Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Chief Executive Officer of Skã¥Nska Byggvaror Division Oscar Tjärnberg for kr626k worth of shares, at about kr31.39 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than kr28.74 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. To us, it's very important to consider the price insiders pay for shares.
