Insiders who purchased Breedon Group plc (LON:BREE) shares in the past 12 months are unlikely to be deeply impacted by the stock's 3.5% decline over the past week. Reason being, despite the recent loss, insiders original purchase value of UK£65k is now worth UK£78k.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.

Breedon Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when CFO & Director James Brotherton bought UK£65k worth of shares at a price of UK£0.86 per share. Even though the purchase was made at a significantly lower price than the recent price (UK£1.04), we still think insider buying is a positive. Because it occurred at a lower valuation, it doesn't tell us much about whether insiders might find today's price attractive.
