CIFI Ever Sunshine Services Group Limited (HKG:1995) drops to HK$9.1b and insiders who purchased earlier this year lose another CN¥1.5m

Simply Wall St ·  {{timeTz}}

The recent price decline of 20% in CIFI Ever Sunshine Services Group Limited's (HKG:1995) stock may have disappointed insiders who bought CN¥2.6m worth of shares at an average price of CN¥12.07 in the past 12 months. Insiders buy with the expectation to see their investments rise in value over a period of time. However, recent losses have rendered their above investment worth CN¥1.1m which is not ideal.

While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what the directors of a company have been doing, logic dictates you should pay some attention to whether insiders are buying or selling shares.
