Troika Media Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by insider Peter Coates for US$3.0m worth of shares, at about US$4.15 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, even at a higher price than the current share price (being US$1.58). While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when an insider has purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was Peter Coates.
