Insider Weekends: John Malone Purchases $75 Million Of Discovery

  • November 24, 2019

Welcome to edition 492 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying increased last week with insiders purchasing $225.13 million of stock last week compared to $134.86 million in the week prior. Selling also increased with insiders selling $2.26 billion of stock last week compared to $1.58 billion in the week prior.

Sell/Buy Ratio: The insider Sell/Buy ratio is calculated by dividing the total insider sales in a given week by total insider purchases that week. The adjusted ratio for last week dropped to 10.06. In other words, insiders sold more than 10 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares favorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 11.72.

Note: As mentioned in the first post in this series, certain industries have their preferred metrics such as same store sales for retailers, funds from operations (FFO) for REITs and revenue per available room (RevPAR) for hotels that provide a better basis for comparison than simple valuation metrics.
