Does TasFoods Boast High Insider Ownership?

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. TasFoods insiders own about AU$6.5m worth of shares. That equates to 23% of the company. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it’s enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.

So What Do The TasFoods Insider Transactions Indicate?

The recent insider purchase is heartening. And an analysis of the transactions over the last year also gives us confidence. But on the other hand, the company made a loss during the last year, which makes us a little cautious. When combined with notable insider ownership, these factors suggest TasFoods insiders are well aligned, and that they may think the share price is too low. So these insider transactions can help us build a thesis about the stock, but it’s also worthwhile knowing the risks facing this company.
