Insiders of National Vision Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYE) Are Probably Glad They Bought Last Year as Their US$3.0m Investment Now Stands at US$4.0m

Simply Wall St ·  08/30 20:55

Insiders who bought National Vision Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:EYE) in the last 12 months may probably not pay attention to the stock's recent 3.5% drop. Even after accounting for the recent loss, the US$3.0m worth of stock purchased by them is now worth US$4.0m or in other words, their investment continues to give good returns.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
