The last 12 months of insider trading at Iconovo

In fact, the most recent sale of Orest Lastow was, according to our records, the largest sale of Iconovo shares that an insider person has made in the past twelve months. So it’s clear that an insider wanted to take some money off the table, even below the current price of 57.80 kr. When an insider sells below the current price, it indicates that they consider that lower price to be fair. That makes us wonder what you think of the (higher) recent rating. While insider selling is not a positive sign, we cannot be sure if insiders believe the stocks are fully valued, so this is only a weak sign. This single sale was only 2.4% of Orest Lastow’s stake.

Last year we saw that insiders bought 6.95,000 shares worth 354,000 kr. But they sold 20,000 shares for 1.1 million kr.
