Company insiders are senior officers of the company, members of their board of directors and those that own more than 10% of the company’s shares.
The numbers of shares these people own are public and so are their share purchases or sales of that company.
Insiders’ buy and sell shares through in 2 ways – Form 144 and Rule 10b5.
- Form 144 – is for a one time purchase or sale.
- Rule 10b5- is a pre-established plan to buy or sell the company shares at a set time every month/quarter/year. However, as the parameters are set there can be no insider trading.
This data can be found through Thomson Reuters’ Insider Data on WRDS and through Bloomberg. If using Bloomberg, Ticker < Equity> and look up Management Profile and Reported Holdings or use Ticker <Equity> PHDC to get list of Insiders and Institutional Ownership
