Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.
Grit Real Estate Income Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
The Chief Strategy Officer & Investor Relations Darren Veenhuis made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for UK£954k worth of shares at a price of UK£0.52 each. That means that even when the share price was higher than UK£0.34 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. To us, it's very important to consider the price insiders pay for shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when insiders have purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price.
