There is problem with the program tracking CEO and CFO trades in that it does this for page 1 but after you go to page 2 and onward all different insider trades are being added to the mix. It is not working properly and I have seen it work right before.
ReplyButle49056@yahoo - 5 months ago
What is the best time of day to daytrade? Is the best time the last hour or so of the regular session, ie. 930-4PM. I have been observing volatility at the open and then volatility around an hour of the close and even the last 15 minutes to close and seems like a lot of volatility at last hour to 15 minutes of close. Instead of being sucked into the market open with all the overnite orders being filled I thought I would have a plan to do other things during the day (I am retired) and then day trade the last hour or so of every day and then see if I can be more successful. What I find if I begin day trading at open is that I get so involved that I spend the entire Does anyone have any insight from their experience over the years as to the best time of the day to daytrade??? Please help.

Can you identify stock purchases and option exercises separately in your Company "Insider Ownership" Monthly Summaries and your "Insider Trades" data files? Also, adding separate columns for the number of monthly purchases, sales, and options exercises would be fantastic. Thanks.
ReplyJazgal - 7 months ago
maybe because when they exercise their options it is not done in open market ... usually a compensation .. and usually exercise them then sell them - 7 months ago

Why does the insider trading information does not show CEO's Buying through exercising option ? For example, AEL (ticker) CEO MATOVINA JOHN M executed insider transaction on Nov 24th and I am not able to find that anywhere.

ReplyGurufocus - 6 years ago
As you can see from this page, there are 619 pages in total, data goes back to 3 years ago. Therefore, if we want to sort, we have to sort within certain ranges, either within a time period or within certain number of buys/sells.
ReplyPcspcs - 6 years ago
Your system does not allow proper sorting. Sorts the current page, not the entire list. I want to sort the entire list by company, trade price, etc. Also, sometimes headings do not show as sort links. Many times page must be refreshed several times to correct this.

Thank you for the valuable suggestions. We will work toward that.

Of course if you can recommend GuruFocus to the media, it will be very helpful to its "long live", especially during this tough time.

ReplyNewhigh - 6 years ago
Thanks for the great changes to the Insider section! This will save me a great deal of time. And hopefully get you new clients who are currently dependent on other (very expensive) insider subscription services. Can I suggest a couple of important refinements to what you have already done? You'd be providing a really unique, not to mentionally highly marketable, service if you can do the following:

1. I love it when CFOs or other savvy operators massively increase their holdings on the open market. Can we somehow download a list of those companies with the highest % change in insider buying in the last x months? My own personal interest would be to look at those companies where CFOs are using their own money to massively increase their holdings by 500% or more - a sure vote of confidence in the company's future prospects; when screening, it would be nice if your system could allow us to eliminate those stocks where insiders have been selling in the last x months.

2. I only like to buy stocks where savvy insiders, eg CFOs, are buying on the open market AND, most importantly, where ROE has improved recently. Is there some way you can adapt the system to screen for these criteria? Displaying a few fundabentals like "%change in ROE" in the excel download, together with the insider data, would be a great start.

3. The great Peter Lynch was fond of stocks where institutional ownership was very low - often below 1%. Stocks with increasing institutional ownership will always fare well, especially when insiders are buying as well. Is there some way you can adapt the system so we can select only those stocks where last reported institutional ownership was above or below x%? Data on institutional ownership is freely available eg.

I spend so much time doing the above manually. If you get this going, I will take great pleasure in recommending your site to interested journalists at Investors Business Daily and Barrons.

Long live Gurufocus! Keep up the great work.

Many thanks

This page has been updated to include sector/industr, market cap, positions of the insiders in Excel download.
ReplyGurufocus - 6 years ago
Yes, these can be done. We will update the insider download page to include these.

Can you also let us know how you use the downloaded data, if possible? Maybe we can include some more info into the download which will reduce your work?
ReplyNewhigh - 6 years ago
1. I need to download a list of CFO insider buys. Everytime I try to download this from Gurufocus, I seem to get a list of all insiders, not just the CFOs. Can the system be improved to allow us to download by criteria such as "officer", "CFO", "director" etc

2. Is there a way we can download or list the following:
- Insider buys in x weeks as a percent of total number of listed shares.
- Insider buys by sector.

Hope you can help. I'm currently having to subscribe to other services for this information.
ReplyM.aboulwafa - 6 years ago
yes if you see heavy selling the way Mozilo sold Countrywide, and we shorted at $40, then we could have made serious money. Especially when its just not one insider but several.
ReplyAugustabound - 6 years ago
Sure, I guess if multiple insiders are selling in a poor or declining business that could be a flag.
ReplyCallaquin - 6 years ago

I like to go by how Peter Lynch described insider selling, they can do it for many reasons, few of which are in reaction to the business model.
A lot of variables go with insider selling from locking in profits, to selling for personal reasons like paying down debt, a renovation, divorce, child expenses etc.
There's only one reason for insider buying, confidence in the company and it's direction.

ReplyGurufocus - 6 years ago
There are much more insider sales than insider buys. Currently insider sales are only listed under specific stocks.

By the way, why an overall picture of Insider sells are important?
