While doing his insider trading research, Nejat Seyhun, a professor at the University of Michigan found that when insiders purchased shares in their own organizations, the stock had a tendency to beat the market by 8.9% over 12 months period. Then again, when they sold their shares, the stock underperformed the market by 5.4%.
Most traders and investors mistakenly think that insider trading is an illegal activity. Not only it is legal for insiders to trade the stock, they are required by law to make their security acquisitions and dispositions public by filing their trades with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This is where you can benefit from them.
Thousands of forms from corporate insiders are filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) daily.
