Top Glove Corporation Bhd Insider Ups Holding During Year

Viewing insider transactions for Top Glove Corporation Bhd.'s (KLSE:TOPGLOV ) over the last year, we see that insiders were net buyers. This means that a larger number of shares were purchased by insiders in relation to shares sold.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.

Top Glove Corporation Bhd Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Executive Director Hooi Sin Lim bought RM3.7m worth of shares at a price of RM0.90 per share. That implies that an insider found the current price of RM0.91 per share to be enticing. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. We do always like to see insider buying, but it is worth noting if those purchases were made at well below today's share price, as the discount to value may have narrowed with the rising price. In this case we're pleased to report that the insider bought shares at close to current prices. Hooi Sin Lim was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

Insider Ownership

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests.

Most shareholders would be happy to see this sort of insider ownership, since it suggests that management incentives are well aligned with other shareholders.

So What Does This Data Suggest About Top Glove Corporation Bhd Insiders?

The recent insider purchase is heartening. We also take confidence from the longer term picture of insider transactions. But we don't feel the same about the fact the company is making losses.
