Insider transactions can provide a valuable glimpse into how corporate insiders really view a company. As the famous saying goes: Actions speak louder than words. And the advantage here is that insiders such as executives and directors may well have a greater insight into the company and its outlook than the average investor.

That’s why tracking insider transactions – whether it’s insider buying or insider selling – can be a valuable strategy. Especially when there are multiple insiders either selling or buying stocks around the same time.

Today, we’re looking at the TipRanks Daily Insider Transactions tool (opens in new tab) to highlight some of the stocks that have insiders heading for the door. This could be because they believe shares are trading at an attractive price and want to take profits – potentially before prices fall.

Crucially, the insider tool we used here allows you to focus on only informative transactions – and therefore excludes uninformative transactions that do not necessarily indicate insider sentiment. For instance, some insiders simply exercise stock options ahead of expiry dates, which doesn’t tell us much.

With that in mind, here are five stocks seeing notable insider selling right now.
