InterGlobe Aviation insider trading in the past year
Notably, this recent sale by director of aircraft acquisition and financing, Riyaz Peer Mohamed, was not the only time they have sold shares of InterGlobe Aviation this year. Previously, they had made an even larger sale of -457 million yen of shares at a price of 1,747 yen per share. This means that even when the stock price was lower than the current price of 1996, an insider wanted to cash in certain stocks. Generally, we find it disheartening when insiders sell below the current price, as it suggests they were happy with a lower valuation. While insider selling is not a positive sign, we cannot be sure that this means that insiders think stocks are fully valued, so it is only a weak sign. This one-time sale only represented 15% of Riyaz Peer Mohamed’s stake.

I like to see this level of insider ownership because it increases the chances that management is thinking in the best interests of shareholders.
