Stocks with Biggest Insider Buys and Sells in November 2011

December 01, 2011 | About:
Insider trades are unfair, illegal and they damage the financial system. The good thing for the normal investor is that insider trades must be published, and they have a signal effect. They indicate that insiders, those who probably know the company best, are confident or skeptical about the future success. This information could be used for their own asset allocation. However, I screened insider transactions from last month and aggregated the sales and buys of companies. Here are the three top stocks with biggest insider buys and sales from last month:

1. Dunkin' Brands Group (DNKN) is acting within the restaurants industry. The company has a market capitalization of $3.0 billion, generates revenues in an amount of $609.5 million and has a net income of $7.6 million.
