What is insider trading?
For the sake of the newbies, I’ll explain briefly what insider trading is.
We call the director, an officer of a publicly-listed company, or third-party individuals who came to know the material through the company’s officer(s) an “insider.”
Therefore, insider trading refers to the act of buying or selling shares of a stock by an officer or a third-party individual or entity.
There’s good and bad insider trade.
I understand that the phrase “insider trading” has a bad meaning for many.
To put this in the right context, the bad version of insider trading is the act of exploiting non-public information for the insider’s benefit.
The “good version” are the ones that are publicly-disclosed.
Where can you see publicly-disclosed insider trades?
You can read company disclosures either on their website or on edge.pse.com.ph.
On edge.pse.com.ph, type in the stock code on the upper right-hand corner.
Then, click the Company Disclosures tab.
Often, these disclosures on insider trading are entitled “Statement of Changes in Beneficial Ownership of Securities”.
When you open that disclosure, you’ll see the name of the officer who bought or sold an X number of shares.
Without further ado, I’ll show you now the rank of the 30 index stocks according to the absolute value of the insider trades that happened in these stocks for the past 12 months.
