Trading with the Insiders: How to Profit from the Stock Trading of Corporate Officers
Today, "insider data" is readily available for every publicly available stock. And while stories of illegal "insider trading" abound, the fact is that it is completely legal for corporate executives and directors to freely buy and sell shares of their own firm, as long as they report their transactions to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Given that company insiders presumably have a better handle on company performance and prospects than outside investors, these transactions may provide you with valuable clues about the future of the company's stock price.
Now, in Trade with the Insiders, author Jonathan Moreland, an expert in the analysis of insider stock transaction data, reveals how you can use this information to improve your trading performance. This reliable resource will help investors track how "insiders" trade their own companies' shares by following the Form 4s filed at the SEC. Along the way, it will skillfully guide you through both the how's and why's of making the most of this profitable data stream.
