Most Recent Insider Selling/Buying Ratio Hits 95x

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Not sure if there is a glitch in FinViz' data, but the most recent data indicates a ratio of 95x of insider selling $35 million to insiders buy of a whopping $367,720. If anyone has more definitive data, please advise, however a ratio of nearly 100x sellers to buyers is pretty conclusive of who is selling to the robots, as the bids are gunned ever higher, and all asset classes (of course, not the dollar) keep going higher.

Simply amazing. The market is turning into the ultimate circle jerk and many people are gambling that they'll be able to abandon ship before it goes down.

Silly "insiders". What could they possibly know?

A bunch of "maroons" is what they are. Look at all the money they have lost by selling!

Let that be a lesson to all of youse.

So in other words we spent more than $787,000 per job so far? That's fucking awful. Worse than C4C, 8KFTB. WTF.

imagine if all those 'insiders' start buying again!!

if the market keeps going up with that much selling...where will the market go when the selling is done and they become 'insider buyers'.

What they become when their selling is done is emigres . . . in their G5's, leaving the revolution far behind.

"The jets in question – two Gulfstream G5 models and five G4 models – are among the most expensive private aircraft in the world, ranging in price from $40 million to $50 million each when new..."

i think your right bob..they just need a little more selling and then they get the hell outta dodge.

Hokay, now lets see here...divide by 61.8, carry the nine, plus a thousand, square root of that and yes, just like I thought, we are at most about 5 points away from the peak on the NASDAQ if 2082 wasn't the peak already.

XLF pattern is what used to be known as a head a shoulders.

Cashing in their paycheck before the great fall or so they can get in before the great fall and before their compensation/bonus plan gets taken away?

Where's MARK IT ZERO?......You're going to become more relevant very soon, plus we love your comments.

/Sarcasm On/ Before the Retail Investor and Pension Funds can buy, there must be shares available.  These philanthropic insiders are sacrificing their shares and financial gains for the good of the Little People. /Sarcasm Off/

I'm so confused....with all the volume of late on C, AIG, CIT, FNM, FRE, BAC, how come those insiders are not on the buy list?  Sally Krawchek does not count at BAC, by the way.

Since we are coming into that timeframe, it might be worthile to some ZH readers to dig through ZH's archieves and revisit that report. Good luck everyone. And thanks to ZH staff for all the good reporting and information.Label Design | Corporate Logo

When the insiders finish selling, they'll call up the Poindexters who watch the flashing lights on Hal-9000 and say: "ok boys, all done, thanks for gunning this thing to suck in slipstreamers so we had some strength to sell into, here's your cut".

Poindexter will type 'init 0', turn out the lights and head out to catch herpes from the skank on the corner.

And all the geniuses on Google finance message boards will continue saying: "WOW! BAC is a bargain at these levels! I'm buying more! Hang in there, IT WILL FLY TOMORROW!!", all the way down to zero.

Sheesh, soon I'm gonna be so short I can suck my toes.

I think the insider buying/selling is more of a systematic issue than insiders giving signs of future business.  Of course, some corporate owners are selling into the bubble rally, but I also think it is a product of wanting to diversify away from the companies they work for to generate more liquidity for themselves.  Many former Lehman employees are wishing they had sold more stock, and anyone with half a brain at this point would want to decrease the concentration of ownership from the company that also pays your salary. 

Additionally, people who are facing trouble refinancing their 5 million dollar homes, or income properties that they bought on interest only loans, or need maintain their pie in the sky lifestyles and missed the big bonus last year need to come up with the funds quick.  Might as well sell some stock.

What I find shocking is that the rest of the country is not feeling the same way.  The market just punched investors in the face, the crooked government is now running the show, and people want to buy?  After the rally we just had?  We just had the Timmy boy(cant help but think of South Park everytime Geitner is on TV) say they are going to make the banks pay the money back, the Fed medicine is going away, and the FDIC is going to pull back its emergency measures.  Maybe Im the only one, but that seems like the perfect case of the government eating its own BS of thinking we have hit a sustainable situation. 

Those all sound like decent catalysts for a pull back to me...

According to Insiderscore.com the number is way higher.

"Insider selling was 346 to 1 in august, and so far in september it's 120 to 1.

In contrast to march were the numbers was reverst with a ratio of 1 to 1023."

The report is referred to by a norwegian finance newspaper here : http://www.na24.no/imarkedet/article2705547.ece (i have not read the actual report)

With the heading Salesorgy among insiders.
