Analysis of Insider Buy/Sell and Relationship with Stock Price

Over the past year, there have been no insider buys for Aptiv PLC, while there have been 15 insider sells. This trend could indicate that insiders believe the stock is overvalued or that they are taking advantage of a high stock price to cash in on their holdings. However, it is essential to consider other factors, such as the company's financial performance and overall market conditions, before drawing any conclusions.

On the day of Kevin Clark's recent sale, shares of Aptiv PLC were trading at $90.19, giving the company a market cap of $24,921.754 million. The stock's price-earnings ratio is 41.50, which is higher than the industry median of 16.48 and higher than the company's historical median price-earnings ratio. This suggests that the stock may be overvalued compared to its peers and its historical valuation.

However, with a price of $90.19 and a GuruFocus Value of $129.16, Aptiv PLC has a price-to-GF-Value ratio of 0.7, indicating that the stock is modestly undervalued based on its GF Value. The GF Value is an intrinsic value estimate developed by GuruFocus, calculated using historical multiples, a GuruFocus adjustment factor, and future estimates of business performance from Morningstar analysts.


While the recent insider sell by Kevin Clark and the overall trend of insider sells over the past year may raise some concerns, it is essential to consider the broader context of the company's financial performance and valuation. Aptiv PLC's stock appears to be modestly undervalued based on its GF Value, suggesting that there may still be potential for growth. Investors should continue to monitor insider transactions, financial performance, and market conditions to make informed decisions about their investments in Aptiv PLC.
