Welcome to edition 580 of Insider Weekends. Insider buying decreased last week with insiders purchasing $190.52 million of stock purchased compared to $247.78 million in the week prior. Selling increased significantly to $5.37 billion compared to $3.85 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 went up to 28.21 In other words, insiders sold more than 28 times as much stock as they purchased. The Sell/Buy ratio this week was unfavorable compared to the prior week when the ratio stood at 14.07.
