TIP OF THE WEEK – See if Insiders are Buying or Selling Their Stocks

See if Insiders are Buying or Selling Their Stocks

It’s always a good idea to see if company insiders are net buyers of the high dividend stock you are considering purchasing.

Sometimes this can give you a warning even if you haven’t done the deep analysis on a company yet.

You can use Morningstar.com to see insiders transactions and total shares held.

I was curious to see how much American Capital Agency Corp. (AGNC) stock insiders own.  Go to www.morningstar.com.  Type in AGNC in the text box and then select Insiders tab.  There are several sub-tabs.  I like the one called Insider Activity.  There is table below that with the tabs Transaction History and Holding Summary.


Several executives of AGNC own no shares of the company.  That’s not a good sign.  Do the same on a stock you are curious about.
