Insiders who bought AU$150k worth of Gullewa Limited (ASX:GUL) stock in the last year recovered part of their losses as the stock rose by 15% last week. The purchase, however, has proven to be a pricey bet, with losses currently totalling AU$2.9k.
While insider transactions are not the most important thing when it comes to long-term investing, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.
View our latest analysis for Gullewa
Gullewa Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single sale by an insider was when the CEO, Company Secretary & Executive Director, David Deitz, sold AU$122k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.061 per share. So we know that an insider sold shares at around the present share price of AU$0.06. We generally don't like to see insider selling, but the lower the sale price, the more it concerns us. In this case, the big sale took place at around the current price, so it's not too bad (but it's still not a positive). David Deitz was the only individual insider to sell over the last year. Notably David Deitz was also the biggest buyer, having purchased AU$150k worth of shares.
In the last twelve months insiders purchased 2.45m shares for AU$150k. But they sold 2.00m shares for AU$122k. Overall, Gullewa insiders were net buyers during the last year.

There was some insider buying at Gullewa over the last quarter. Insiders purchased AU$31k worth of shares in that period. It's good to see the insider buying, as well as the lack of recent sellers. But in this case the amount purchased means the recent transaction may not be very meaningful on its own.
Insider Ownership Of Gullewa
I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. Gullewa insiders own about AU$6.4m worth of shares (which is 55% of the company). I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
