Insider Selling Outpaces Buying By Over 650-To-1 In Past Week

Recommended Posts

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/insider-selling-outpaces-buying-over-650-1-past-week

'According to Bloomberg, for the week ended September 10, corporate insiders bought $0.5MM in shares in 4 different companies. This was offset by sales of $332MM in 72 different companies, a ratio of 651 of sellers to buyers. At least companies are making their opinions known on the viability of the latest bear market rally. The suckers? All those who are still not involved in the rigged casino but actually buying'

do as I say not as I do etc.the suckers continue to get mugged.

Thanks - very interesting.

Noticed here a few days ago (I posted it elsewhere):

http://www.cnbc.com/id/39101491

Can someone explain to me in real simple dummy terms how there can be low volume of shares bought but that prices go up?

OK, if I am the only person today who decides a curly wurly (do they still make these?) but I decide to pay £1,000 for it then I know that the sales volume can be low but the price go up.... but then that implies that I am nuts and surely the low volume but rising share prices means that buyers are paying over the odds for shares?

Why would they do this? Surely is few people are buying then the price the shares sell at will be lower?

Could just be a yield play:

http://www.munknee.com/2010/08/earn-10-in-dividends-with-these-30-russell-2000-stocks/

Frontier, etc. all have very high dividend yields.

Could be "bond fright" with yields on the 10Yr going back to 2.85%

A LOT of talk about stocks being better than bonds for yield right now.

They don't get it. With the death of the cult of equity comes a price collapse to accompany the spike in yields.

As long as you don't mind your "capital value varying" - get stuck in.

basically when vol is low it takes a lot less moeny to move the market up.

once you get the market moving one way or t'other momo/algo/HFT traders come in and reinforce the move.the basic premise of trading a market like this is that you will find another sucker to move shares onto before they hit the wall.That sucker continues to be buyers who are forced to buy equities for a variety of reasons eg pension funds,ETF's,tracker funds.joe public will get the bill in the end,don't worry.

what low vol reflects is a lack of fundamental demand on the buy side of the equation from longer term,more discretionary buyers.

Thanks, that is very information and very, very interesting.

Time Warner looks like it's about $1/share yield

Dr. Pepper has only being paying out since last Nov - again, about $1/share.

Edited: Zions Banccorp looks a little out of place with $0.01 dividend per share. Maybe there is something fishy going on.

M&S sells a lot of dresses at £X

JOhn Lewis Sells fewer at £Y

Stella McCartney sells a handful at £Z

The higher the prices the smaller the volume. Er, just like houses.
