Quite a few insiders invested in Harris Technology Group Limited (ASX:HT8) last year which is positive news for shareholders

When a single insider purchases stock, it is typically not a major deal. However, when multiple insiders purchase stock, like in Harris Technology Group Limited's (ASX:HT8) instance, it's good news for shareholders.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Harris Technology Group

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when CEO, MD & Executive Director Garrison Huang bought AU$133k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.11 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of AU$0.061. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when insiders have purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price.

Does Harris Technology Group Boast High 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. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. Harris Technology Group insiders own about AU$6.6m worth of shares. That equates to 36% of the company. We've certainly seen higher levels of insider ownership elsewhere, but these holdings are enough to suggest alignment between insiders and the other shareholders.
