One THG Insider Raised Stake By 199% In Previous Year

Viewing insider transactions for THG Plc's (LON:THG ) over the last year, we see that insiders were net buyers. This means that a larger number of shares were purchased by insiders in relation to shares sold.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.

See our latest analysis for THG

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At THG

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by COO & Executive Director John Gallemore for UK£448k worth of shares, at about UK£0.77 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, at around the current price, which is UK£0.83. Of course they may have changed their mind. But this suggests they are optimistic. We do always like to see insider buying, but it is worth noting if those purchases were made at well below today's share price, as the discount to value may have narrowed with the rising price. In this case we're pleased to report that the insider bought shares at close to current prices. John Gallemore was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

THG is not the only stock that insiders are buying. For those who like to find winning investments this free list of growing companies with recent insider purchasing, could be just the ticket.

Insider Ownership Of THG

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. It's great to see that THG insiders own 25% of the company, worth about UK£268m. 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 THG Insiders?

The fact that there have been no THG insider transactions recently certainly doesn't bother us. However, our analysis of transactions over the last year is heartening. It would be great to see more insider buying, but overall it seems like THG insiders are reasonably well aligned (owning significant chunk of the company's shares) and optimistic for the future. 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. You'd be interested to know, that we found 3 warning signs for THG and we suggest you have a look.
