Insiders selling shares can cause investors concern. This could indicate that insiders have become bearish about the shares of their company's stock. Investors should pay close attention to insiders' ability to determine the company's value. We'll take a closer look at the insider sale to determine if SiTime Corp is worthy of some skeptical investors.

Rajesh Vashist trades

Rajesh Vashist sold 157013 shares over the last year.

Rajesh Vashist may have been selling the stock of their company over a more long-term. Contrary to what was expected, this could be a good sign for stock. Insiders selling frequently could indicate that their company has a large number of stock options for executives. Executives will sell some shares to raise cash. It is possible, however, that insiders became more bearish about the stock. Insider selling should not be taken lightly by investors.

Trends from the inside

One insider selling doesn't necessarily mean other insiders have a bearish view of the stock. Is the stock being sold by other insiders? Or have top company executives and owners bought more recently?

SiTime Corp's insider transactions history shows that there were 1 insider buys over the last year. In the meantime, there were 71 insider sales in that same period.

Rajesh Vashist has not been the only insider to sell shares in recent months. Other company insiders have also started selling more than buying, which can be worrying for investors. We should remember that insiders can sell shares for many reasons. A high level of insider sales could indicate a negative sign or neutral, depending upon the motivation behind it.
