Maverix Metals Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The CEO & Director Daniel O'Flaherty made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for CA$189k worth of shares at a price of CA$4.19 each. Although we like to see insider buying, we note that this large purchase was at significantly below the recent price of CA$6.66. While it does suggest insiders consider the stock undervalued at lower prices, this transaction doesn't tell us much about what they think of current prices.

Over the last year, we can see that insiders have bought 183.67k shares worth CA$912k. On the other hand they divested 20.50k shares, for CA$141k. Overall, Maverix Metals insiders were net buyers during the last year. The average buy price was around CA$4.97. To my mind it is good that insiders have invested their own money in the company. However, we do note that they were buying at significantly lower prices than today's share price.
