5 stocks insiders sell
When insiders sell stocks, it indicates that they are worried about the prospects for the company or that they consider the stock to be overvalued. Either way, this signals an opportunity to short sell the stock. Insider selling should not be taken as the sole indicator for making an investment or trading decision. At best, it can add conviction to a selling decision.
