Resource description

Many investors are wondering: is it time to take the plunge and go back into stocks? While no-one can predict the future, it is generally accepted that company insiders know more than outsiders. So, one way to check whether insiders have confidence is to check net insider buying data (insider purchases minus insider sales). However, such a signal is likely to be noisy, as in many cases insider sales are driven by personal reasons such as the need to sell stocks to finance consumption or pay off debt.
