Great news for Conifex Timber Inc. (TSE:CFF): Insiders acquired stock in large numbers last year

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

While insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Conifex Timber

In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Chairman Kenneth Shields bought CA$197k worth of shares at a price of CA$1.97 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of CA$1.59. Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. 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.
