Sunmoon Food Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Non-Independent Non-Executive Director Xiaojun Song for S$2.9m worth of shares, at about S$0.023 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than S$0.02 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. It is encouraging to see an insider paid above the current price for shares, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was Xiaojun Song.
