Even though Mobile Streams Plc's (LON:MOS) stock is down 25% this week, insiders who bought lately made a UK£14k profit

Mobile Streams Plc (LON:MOS) insiders who acquired shares over the previous 12 months, can probably afford to ignore the recent 25% decline in the stock price. Reason being, despite the recent loss, insiders original purchase value of UK£254k is now worth UK£267k.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.

Mobile Streams Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

In fact, the recent sale by Mark Epstein was the biggest sale of Mobile Streams shares made by an insider individual in the last twelve months, according to our records. That means that an insider was selling shares at around the current price of UK£0.0029. While insider selling is a negative, to us, it is more negative if the shares are sold at a lower price. Given that the sale took place at around current prices, it makes us a little cautious but is hardly a major concern.

Happily, we note that in the last year insiders paid UK£254k for 90.67m shares. But they sold 90.67m shares for UK£254k. In total, Mobile Streams insiders bought more than they sold over the last year. You can see a visual depiction of insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last 12 months, below.
