What does insider trading tell me as an investor?

Any reported activity of corporate insiders (buying or selling the company’s stock) usually indicates that something is changing in the company’s market, changing within the company itself, or changing within the company’s products and services.

You may also want to pay special attention to when corporate insiders buy their company’s shares.
