Even if it's not a huge purchase, we think it was good to see that Daniel Kitchen, the Independent Non-Executive Chairman of Sirius Real Estate Limited (LON:SRE) recently shelled out UK£50k to buy stock, at UK£0.67 per share. While that isn't the hugest buy, it actually boosted their shareholding by 52%, which is good to see.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Sirius Real Estate

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when CEO & Executive Director Andrew Coombs bought UK£1.1m worth of shares at a price of UK£1.39 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of UK£0.70. 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. It is generally more encouraging if they paid above the current price, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels.

Does Sirius Real Estate Boast High Insider Ownership?

Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. A high insider ownership often makes company leadership more mindful of shareholder interests. Sirius Real Estate insiders own about UK£14m worth of shares. That equates to 1.8% of the company. We've certainly seen higher levels of insider ownership elsewhere, but these holdings are enough to suggest alignment between insiders and the other shareholders.
