Simply Wall St

Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that Vikrant Raina, who is a company insider, recently bought US$100k worth of stock, for US$39.97 per share. While that isn't the hugest buy, it actually boosted their shareholding by 51%, which is good to see.

CoreLogic Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the Managing Director of Underwriting & Workflow Solutions, Barry Sando, for US$724k worth of shares, at about US$48.24 per share. So what is clear is that an insider saw fit to sell at around the current price of US$40.49. We generally don't like to see insider selling, but the lower the sale price, the more it concerns us. We note that this sale took place at around the current price, so it isn't a major concern, though it's hardly a good sign.

Insider Ownership of CoreLogic

Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. Insiders own 1.0% of CoreLogic shares, worth about US$34m. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.

What Might The Insider Transactions At CoreLogic Tell Us?

The stark truth for CoreLogic is that there has been more insider selling than insider buying in the last three months. And our longer term analysis of insider transactions didn't bring confidence, either. While insiders do own shares, they don't own a heap, and they have been selling. We'd think twice before buying!
