Insider Weekends: Insiders Of Driven Brands Driven To Buy More

  • January 24, 2021

Welcome to edition 552 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying decreased significantly last week with insiders purchasing $5.43 million of stock compared to $37.41 million in the week prior. Selling increased with insiders selling $1.69 billion of stock last week compared to $1.25 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 increased significantly to 310.71. In other words, insiders sold almost 311 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week compares unfavorably with the prior week, when the ratio stood at 33.53.

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.
