Welcome to edition 288 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying declined significantly last week with insiders buying $60.29 million of stock compared to $308.73 million in the week prior. Selling also decreased with insiders selling $522.92 million of stock last week compared to $871.89 million in the week prior.

Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week went up to 8.67. In other words, insiders sold more than 8 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 2.82. We are calculating an adjusted ratio by removing transactions by funds and companies and trying as best as possible only to retain information about insiders and 10% owners who are not funds or companies.

Welcome to edition 287 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying decreased last week with insiders buying $308.73 million of stock compared to $596.73 million in the week prior. Selling on the other hand increased with insiders selling $871.89 million of stock last week compared to $767.16 million in the week prior. Despite the decline in insider buying, insider buying remains elevated as insider buying tracks below $200 million most weeks.

Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week went up to 2.82. In other words, insiders sold almost 3 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 1.29. We are calculating an adjusted ratio by removing transactions by funds and companies and trying as best as possible only to retain information about insiders and 10% owners who are not funds or companies.

December 12, 2015 | Insider Buying | Author Asif

Welcome to edition 286 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying increased significantly last week with insiders buying $596.73 million of stock compared to $45.92 million in the week prior. Selling on the other hand decreased with insiders selling $767.16 million of stock last week compared to $1.15 billion in the week prior. The big spike in purchases this week was related to Carl Icahn adding to his stakes in Hertz (HTZ) and Cheniere Energy (LNG).

Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week dropped to 1.29. In other words, insiders sold a little more stock than they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares favorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 25.02. We are calculating an adjusted ratio by removing transactions by funds and companies and trying as best as possible only to retain information about insiders and 10% owners who are not funds or companies.

Insider Weekends – December 4, 2015

Bookmark and Share

December 6, 2015 | Insider Buying | Author Asif

Welcome to edition 285 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying declined last week with insiders buying $45.92 million of stock compared to $67.18 million in the week prior. Selling also decreased with insiders selling $1.15 billion of stock last week compared to $1.85 billion in the week prior.

Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week dropped to 25.02. In other words, insiders sold more than 25 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares favorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 27.49. We are calculating an adjusted ratio by removing transactions by funds and companies and trying as best as possible only to retain information about insiders and 10% owners who are not funds or companies.

Note: As mentioned in the first post in this series, certain industries have their preferred metrics such as same store sales for retailers, funds from operations (FFO) for REITs and revenue per available room (RevPAR) for hotels that provide a better basis for comparison than simple valuation metrics. However metrics like Price/Earnings, Price/Sales and Enterprise Value/EBITDA included below should provide a good starting point for analyzing the majority of stocks.

Notable Insider Buys:

1. DSW Inc. (DSW): $23.67

Executive Chairman Jay L. Schottenstein acquired 500,000 shares of this retailer of shoes, paying $22.87 per share for a total amount of $11.44 million. These shares were purchased indirectly by Schottenstein Realty LLC.

We wrote the following about the company after a purchase by Mr. Schottenstein in August,

“DSW posted respectable second quarter earnings with a 7% increase in net sales to $627 million, a 10% increase in earnings to $38 million or 42 cents per share and a 2% increase in same store sales. Yet the stock lounges near its 52 week low despite trading for less than 7 times EBITDA and sporting a dividend yield of 2.66%. The company has a strong balance sheet with no debt and $471 million in short and long-term investments. The stock was down following second quarter results because revenue fell short of analyst expectations and inventory increased to $505 million, a 6.3% increase on a square foot basis.”

The stock trended down over the last few months along with other brick-and-mortar retailers before rebounding more than 4% on Friday following Mr. Schottenstein’s purchase.
