The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Cvent Holding

In fact, the recent purchase by Independent Director James Frankola was not their only acquisition of Cvent Holding shares this year. They previously made an even bigger purchase of US$143k worth of shares at a price of US$7.13 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of US$5.28. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. To us, it's very important to consider the price insiders pay for shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when an insider has purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was James Frankola.

Does Cvent Holding Boast High Insider Ownership?

Many investors like to check how much of a company is owned by insiders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. Cvent Holding insiders own 5.0% of the company, currently worth about US$127m based on the recent share price. I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.

So What Does This Data Suggest About Cvent Holding Insiders?

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. Once you factor in the high insider ownership, it certainly seems like insiders are positive about Cvent Holding. Looks promising! In addition to knowing about insider transactions going on, it's beneficial to identify the risks facing Cvent Holding. At Simply Wall St, we've found that Cvent Holding has 4 warning signs (2 are potentially serious!) that deserve your attention before going any further with your analysis.
