In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Chairman of the Board Michael Fierman bought US$475k worth of shares at a price of US$19.00 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than US$14.18 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important.
