Oakridge International Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
The insider Zhendong Zhang made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for AU$275k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.11 each. That implies that an insider found the current price of AU$0.12 per share to be enticing. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. If someone buys shares at well below current prices, it's a good sign on balance, but keep in mind they may no longer see value.
