InsiderInsights’ Daily Round Up articles rate the “significance” of the top 10 dollar value insider purchases and sales filed at the SEC yesterday. Dollar value is only the most basic metric to assess the significance of an insider transaction, however, and there are many more “Significant” insider trades with lower dollar values every day in our comprehensive Daily Insider Ratings Reports, which also reach clients before the market opens each morning.

We employ over a million lines of code programming and our decades of experience analyzing insider transactions to harvest, analyze, and profitably rate insider transactions in real time. When a new insider transaction occurs, our programs mathematically score the significance of the company’s 3-month insider profile based on numerous criteria.

Stocks that achieve an InsiderInsights Company Rating of “Significant” and “Nearly Significant” have been independently validated to generate alpha as a group. Only stocks that achieve those Ratings on the tables below are highlighted in our article headlines and have our articles linked to their Seeking Alpha company profiles.

The intention of our Round Up articles is to both separate real insider investment intelligence from time-wasting noise and to educate investors that – though insider transactions are indeed an excellent source of investment intelligence – it takes much more analysis than screening by dollar values to make money from insider data.

On Today’s Tables:

Insider trades were rated Significant at :

  • S&W Seed (NASDAQ:SANW);
  • OPKO Health (NYSEMKT:OPK);
  • Mallinckrodt (NYSE:MNK), and;
  • Medley Capital (NYSE:MCC).

Insider trades were rated Nearly Significant at:

  • Revlon (NYSE:REV);
  • Lands’ End (NASDAQ:LE), and;
  • IDT (NYSE:IDT).

Insider trades were considered Insignificant at:

  • SunCoke Energy (NYSE:SXCP);
  • Cancer Genetics (NASDAQ:CGIX);
  • SEI Investments (NASDAQ:SEIC);
  • Reata Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:RETA);
  • Puma Biotech (NYSE:PBYI);
  • Fossil (NASDAQ:FOSL);
  • Facebook (NASDAQ:FB);
  • CBOE (NASDAQ:CBOE), and;
  • Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET).

There is a Conflicted Insider Signal (both purchases and sales) at:

  • Bridge Bancorp (NASDAQ:BDGE), and;
  • Brinks (NYSE:BCO).

There is an IPO or Known Corporate Action at:

  • ShotSpotter (Pending:SSTI).

It’s difficult to argue significance for most transactions made during IPOs, or when insiders make trades during a known corporate action.
