Southern Packaging Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by insider Shek Chuen Jen for S$191k worth of shares, at about S$0.39 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than S$0.35 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. 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. Shek Chuen Jen was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. Southern Packaging Group insiders own 84% of the company, currently worth about S$21m 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.
