Topic: % Held by Insiders
Posted: Wednesday, May 24, 2017 5:32:04 PM

wouldn't that mean that insiders bought/aquired 1.3 million shares

I am guessing that this might have to do with options as well.

If the insiders excersized their stock options and didn't sell it would count those new aquired shares as insider shares which will cause the line to rise. Even though their cost basis is minimal for those shares

I am comparing the TC indicator % Shares Held by Insiders vs. what I see on Marketsmith from IBD and Yahoo

My question is how can the % shares held by the insiders rise as the indicator in TC shows while we don't have any transaction that shows the insiders buying unless yahoo and IBD are wrong

or the only other wat that I can think of that the % shares held by insiders will rise is if teh float declines.

Assume we had 100 million in the float and 20 million held by insiders then the indicator will plot 20% but if the float declines to 80 million without any insider buying and the same insiders still own 20 million shares then the indicator will rise to 25% 

So if the float hasn't changes how else can the indicator rise bc its either thry bought more shares or float declined.

I am trying to ply around with this indicator % Shares Held by Insiders.

I am trying to look for stocks that have had increases in this indicator which would mean insiders have bought shares recently. 

I am coming across stock such as BA that shows a pretty constant stair step increase in this indicator while the last time I see any insider buying was in 9/16

DLPH shows am pretty decent spike in the last few months but the last insider buying I see was in 4/16

How can % shares held by Insider rise without insider buying? Naybe this is something that you need to reach out to morningstar for

thx

I played with that already. that woudln't work bc I need to some how see the value of the indicator so I need to have the scale showing.

I thought maybe there is a way I can reduce the opacity of the grid lines to lowest level on the indicator scale?

Bruce

I overlayed teh indicator above on top of price but on its own scale so I have two scales on the right Price and the scale for the indicator which I call PP Number and it goes from 0 to 63

Now in the Price pane I have grid lines for teh price and grid lines for the indicator which clutters the chart. 

How do get rid of the grid lines for the indicator?
