Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the CVS Group plc (LON:CVSG) Independent Non-Executive Chairman, Richard Connell, recently bought UK£73k worth of stock, for UK£16.18 per share. Although the purchase is not a big one, increasing their shareholding by only 2.7%, it can be interpreted as a good sign.

Check out our latest analysis for CVS Group

CVS Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Independent Non-Executive Director David Wilton for UK£94k worth of shares, at about UK£17.12 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, even at a higher price than the current share price (being UK£16.50). 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. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

CVS Group insiders may have bought shares in the last year, but they didn't sell any. The average buy price was around UK£19.25. I'd consider this a positive as it suggests insiders see value at around the current price. The chart below shows insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last year.

Does CVS Group Boast High Insider Ownership?

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. From looking at our data, insiders own UK£3.6m worth of CVS Group stock, about 0.3% of the company. I generally like to see higher levels of ownership.

So What Do The CVS Group Insider Transactions Indicate?
