Bradshaw Stanley J filed a Form 4 with the SEC on Tuesday, September 22. The insider bought 1,200 shares of First Busey Inc (NASDAQ:BUSE) at an average price of $16.50. After the transaction, the executive's stake in First Busey Inc. moved to 24,600 shares. First Busey was trading 2.2% lower from the previous closing price.Why Insider Transactions Are Important? While transactions from an insider shouldn't be used as the sole item to make an investment or trading decision, an insider buying or selling stock in their company can be a good added factor that leads to more conviction in a decision.Insiders buying stock after a notable sell off can indicate an insider's long-term belief in the success of the company; insiders buying stock at new highs can be an indication the exec doesn't feel the stock is overvalued. Insiders who sell stock at new lows could be anticipating some capitulation moment. If the insider sells at new highs, it could point to the intention to "take some profit" and "lock in a gain."Transaction Codes To Focus On Investors prefer focusing on transactions which take place in the open market, indicated in the Form 4 with codes P for purchase and S for sale. An open-market transaction means the insider went into the market of their own volition and made an active decision about the potential path for a company and its stock moving forward.Transaction codes other than P or S are often viewed with less conviction as they are often not tied to a decision by the exec. As an example, transaction code C indicates the conversion of an option. Transaction code A indicates the insider may have been forced to sell shares in order to receive compensation the exec was promised upon being hired by a company.See more from Benzinga * Insider Sells SEI Investments Shares * Insider Buys Kirkland's Shares * Stocks That Hit 52-Week Highs On Tuesday(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
