Positive Indications as Many Insiders Purchase Bitcoin Well Stock

When a single insider purchases stock, it is typically not a major deal. However, when multiple insiders purchase stock, like in Bitcoin Well Inc.'s (CVE:BTCW) instance, it's good news for shareholders.

While insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.

Bitcoin Well Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

My Financial Friend

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Director Terry Rhode bought CA$71k worth of shares at a price of CA$0.064 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than CA$0.055 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. 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. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

In the last twelve months Bitcoin Well insiders were buying shares, but not selling. Their average price was about CA$0.051. These transactions show that insiders have confidence to invest their own money in the stock, albeit at slightly below the recent price. You can see the insider transactions (by companies and individuals) over the last year depicted in the chart below.

I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. Bitcoin Well insiders own about CA$4.8m worth of shares (which is 50% of the company). This kind of significant ownership by insiders does generally increase the chance that the company is run in the interest of all shareholders.
