The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At CardieX
In fact, the recent purchase by Paul Cozzi was the biggest purchase of CardieX shares made by an insider individual in the last twelve months, according to our records. That implies that an insider found the current price of AU$0.027 per share to be enticing. That means they have been optimistic about the company in the past, though they may have changed their mind. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it's a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value. The good news for CardieX share holders is that an insider was buying at near the current price. Paul Cozzi was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. CardieX insiders own about AU$3.9m worth of shares. That equates to 19% of the company.

So What Does This Data Suggest About CardieX Insiders?
It's certainly positive to see the recent insider purchase. And an analysis of the transactions over the last year also gives us confidence. But on the other hand, the company made a loss last year, which makes us a little cautious. Given that insiders also own a fair bit of CardieX we think they are probably pretty confident of a bright future. Along with insider transactions, I recommend checking if CardieX is growing revenue.
