Frequently Asked Questions
Who are "insiders?"
An "insider" is considered anyone with a stake of 10 percent or more in any given company. This often includes: Corporate officers (Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Information Officer), Directors, Board Members, Mutual Funds, Hedge Funds or large Individual Investors.
What is insider trading?
"Insider trading" is the buying or selling of securities by company insiders who have access to corporate financial information that the public does not. Corporate insiders only benefit when their stock moves up. Company insiders are prohibited from shorting their own stock. Yet, they are motivated to increase their share price by cost cutting, seeking new products and partnerships. That is why tracking the insider's purchases can be so beneficial. Corporate insiders have the knowledge and the vision. They are the ones who make corporate decisions and business plans and therefore are the ones you must pay close attention to.
Is it legal?
Occasionally, an illegal transaction is made (as was the case with Martha Stewart and Raj Rajaratnam). However, most are considered legal, with thousands of stocks bought and sold by insiders every single day. Sure, these people have obvious advantages over the rest of the population, but investing is a large part in how American citizens make their profits and fund their retirements.
How timely is the information?
Insiders must report within two business days of buying or selling any stock. We spend our time tracking every filing all day long, so you are assured information that is up-to-date. This enables you to act quickly before the information even reaches the public eye.
Can I find this kind of information myself?
Insider trading is public information that is freely available to anyone at www.sec.gov. However, with 2,000 filings per day, the average person does not have time to sort through them all. Furthermore, most of the information does not hold any value to individual investors at all. TrackingTheInsiders.com intelligently analyzes the raw data and processes for you so it is digestible, timely and relevant.
