RCM Technologies Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the insider, Roger Ballou, sold US$580k worth of shares at a price of US$16.02 per share. That means that even when the share price was below the current price of US$18.97, an insider wanted to cash in some shares. When an insider sells below the current price, it suggests that they considered that lower price to be fair. That makes us wonder what they think of the (higher) recent valuation. Please do note, however, that sellers may have a variety of reasons for selling, so we don't know for sure what they think of the stock price. We note that the biggest single sale was only 20% of Roger Ballou's holding.
