Chamberlin plc (LON:CMH) insider upped their holding by 6.6% earlier this year

Looking at Chamberlin plc's (LON:CMH ) insider transactions over the last year, we can see that insiders were net buyers. That is, there were more number of shares purchased by insiders than there were sold.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.

Check out our latest analysis for Chamberlin

Chamberlin Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Executive Director & Executive Director of Strategy Trevor Brown for UK£80k worth of shares, at about UK£0.045 per share. That implies that an insider found the current price of UK£0.05 per share to be enticing. Of course they may have changed their mind. But this suggests they are optimistic. While we always like to see insider buying, it's less meaningful if the purchases were made at much lower prices, as the opportunity they saw may have passed. The good news for Chamberlin share holders is that an insider was buying at near the current price. Trevor Brown was the only individual insider to buy during the last year.

Trevor Brown bought a total of 4.08m shares over the year at an average price of UK£0.048. You can see a visual depiction of insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last 12 months, below.

Insider Ownership Of Chamberlin

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. Insiders own 30% of Chamberlin shares, worth about UK£1.6m. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.

What Might The Insider Transactions At Chamberlin Tell Us?

It is good to see the recent insider purchase. We also take confidence from the longer term picture of insider transactions. But on the other hand, the company made a loss during the last year, which makes us a little cautious. Insiders likely see value in Chamberlin shares, given these transactions (along with notable insider ownership of the company). While we like knowing what's going on with the insider's ownership and transactions, we make sure to also consider what risks are facing a stock before making any investment decision. Case in point: We've spotted 5 warning signs for Chamberlin you should be aware of, and 4 of these are potentially serious.
