The Impact of Insider Ownership

Left Brain: Insider Ownership

Insider ownership is one of the biggest things Emmet looks out for in a potential investment. In this lesson, we discover:

  • Why insider ownership can show the level of belief that the management team has in the company.

  • The ideal percentage of insider ownership we should look for.

  • What insiders buying stock and insiders selling stock really mean.

Questions To Ask Yourself:

  • How important is it to you that the management team has a big stake in the company they manage? Do you think it's possible to effectively run a company you don't have a significant stake in?

  • Have you ever invested in a company after noticing that insiders had bought a lot of shares recently?

  • Would you worry if you saw insiders selling shares?
