October 18, 2019 | About:

Did you know that the GuruFocus All-in-One Screener can be used to find insider trades from a specific period of time or a certain range of value? For these stock picks, I went under the Insiders tab and changed the settings for All Insider Buying to “$200,000+,” duration to “October 2019” and All Insider Sales to “$200,000+.”

According to these filters, the following are significant trades from company insiders this month.
