The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Hang Lung Group

Notably, that recent purchase by CEO & Executive Director Wai Pak Lo was not the only time they bought Hang Lung Group shares this year. They previously made an even bigger purchase of HK$2.8m worth of shares at a price of HK$18.83 per share. So it's clear an insider wanted to buy, even at a higher price than the current share price (being HK$13.62). Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. As a general rule, we feel more positive about a stock if insiders have bought shares at above current prices, because that suggests they viewed the stock as good value, even at a higher price.

That equates to 0.9% of the company. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
