“They Know Something That We Don’t” – Corporate Insiders Are Unloading Their Stocks Like There’s No Tomorrow

There aren’t any surefire ways to tell if the stock market, and perhaps the rest of the economy, is about to take a nosedive. That’s because millions of people with millions of ideas are involved, so it’s an inherently unpredictable system. However, there are certain players in our economy that have a lot more influence and insider knowledge than the rest of us. So when they make a move in unison, you know there’s a good chance that something is about to go down.

And that’s exactly what’s going on with the stock market right now. The people who would stand to lose the most if the markets crashed; the corporate executives and insiders, are all jumping ship and selling their stocks.

As the investing public has continued to devour stocks, sending all three major indexes to record highs in the last few months, corporate insiders have been offloading shares to an extent not seen in seven years. Selling totaled $10 billion in March, according to data compiled by Trim Tabs.

It’s a troubling trend facing an equity market that’s already grappling with its loftiest valuations since the 2000 tech bubble. If the people with the deepest knowledge of a company are cashing out, why should investors keep buying at current prices?

The groundswell of insider selling has the attention of Brad Lamensdorf, portfolio manager at Ranger Alternative Management, and he doesn’t like what he sees.

“This is definitely a negative sign,” Lamensdorf wrote in his April newsletter. “They do not see value in their own companies!”

And this isn’t a recent trend. While ordinary investors were optimistically diving into the stock market after Trump was elected, these people were dumping their stocks as far back as February.

Chief executives and other corporate insiders are selling stock hand over fist now that the quarterly earnings season is over, a report from Vickers Weekly Insider shows. Transactions by insiders are restricted around a company’s report.

“Insider selling has jumped again, and this time to levels rarely seen,” analyst David Coleman wrote in Monday’s note.

In the last week, insiders’ sale transactions on the NYSE outnumbered their purchase transactions by more than 11 to 1, according to Vickers, a publication of Argus Research. The 11.47 reading is 3.5 standard deviations above the mean, according to Coleman.

Clearly, they know something that most Americans don’t. I’d wager that they know the stock market can’t keep reaching record highs indefinitely, they know the economy is resting on shaky ground, and they know that this sudden surge of investments in the stock market is their last chance to make a killing before the whole thing comes crashing down.

      Puerto Rico Files For Bankruptcy Protection In Largest Ever US Municipal Debt Restructuring

      “As per our report last night that following the expiration of the litigation freeze, Puerto Rico’s creditors had filed a barrage of lawsuits against the insolvent Commonwealth a bankruptcy was imminent,

      moments ago Puerto Rico’s governor announced the commonwealth will request bankruptcy protection of a portion of the island’s $70 billion in debt, setting up a showdown with Wall Street firms owed billions of dollars, in what will be the largest-ever U.S. municipal debt restructuring and further complicating the U.S. territory’s efforts to pull itself out of a financial crisis.

      …The island’s financial recovery plan covers less than a quarter of the debt payments due over the next decade.”

    Didn’t Trump dump stocks also, I mean before he become president, around the same timeframe as the article mentions?

  5. TnAndy says:

    Seems I’ve heard/read this several times in the past few years…..yet the market continues to climb into rare air.

    Makes you wonder if these ‘insiders’ know anymore about anything than anyone else, huh ?

    • PO'd Patriot says:

      Congress critters gets insider trading info legally. Just ask Martha Stewart. Besides, how else do these congress vermin retire from serving and leave as millionaires. Yes there will be a “take up” someday just like the other times. ‘When’ is the big question. I’m hearing every day that the market is over priced yet the band continues playing. Just make sure if you’re a participant that you’re near a empty chair when the music stops.

    • Charley Waite says:

      yeah, just like 1929. That turned out great, right?

  6. Asshat says:

    I never got into the stock market Ponzi scheme. I say cut and run to those who are invested.

  7. Jim in Va. says:

    Santa is making a list……

    • GrandpaSpeaks says:

      Does he need elves?

    • charlie says:

      no one is making a list, american idiots have let criminal rule over them for ages and there isnt a damn thing you can do about it now, and you surely wont after it gets bad, its doubtful you will be able to save your own ass, all it takes is one hiding outside your house waiting for you to stick your head out, you people on here are nothing but fukn idiots

      • GrandpaSpeaks says:

        You may be right. The only way now to peacefully return this country to we the people is to scrutinize all existing laws and regulations as to their compliance to Constitutional principles. Repeal and nullify instead of duck and cover. Reaffirmation instead of scoot and shoot. Meanwhile the lists are held in private.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        WTF Charlie are you doing here then you ass-wipe.

  8. Asshat says:

    People care about topless photos of Kate middlebum prime time tv shows what the stars are wearing. Meanwhile the economy is taking a shit and nk is plotting missile attacks. Just like this time last year I would see help wanted now hiring signs but no one was getting jobs. They have the employment figures based on companies hiring but they aren’t putting anyone on. They tell me nobody wants to work. Yet the free shit entitlement train shows no signs of changing direction. How can anyone be distracted.

  9. nameless says:

    Insiders are dumping because they know everything is overvalued. The DOW is most likely
    overvalued by a least 5,000 points. I think, anyways.

  10. MOCountryBoy says:

    Bring it on! I wanna see the reset!

  11. Yoma says:

    Charley is an angry fella, think maybe he should look in the mirror and learn how to spell before calling everyone idiots.

  12. GrandpaSpeaks says:

    The efficient troubleshooter is the one who correctly identifies the root cause of the failure. But they must command knowledge of the system upon which they work. Good troubleshooters are desirable because it is always more expensive to do major repairs than to perform preventive maintenance. It would have been easier and much cheaper to enforce our Constitution. Now that major repairs are needed the repair manual has been found defaced. All manuals are designed to prevent despondent reflection. Preventive maintenance is a constant pain that must be endured. Now we face major overhaul. The engine sputters.

    Perhaps the story mentioned above has something to do with stock sales????

    The fed is possibly on the list???

    I can’t remember a single quarter for decades now that hasn’t had some claim that “corporate insiders” are unloading stocks at some kind of record pace.

    If that was actually true back when the market was well under 10,000 then “corporate insiders” are basically stupid since they lost the chance to easily double their money.

    So maybe we should do the opposite of what they are doing and double ours while they miss out on the opportunity again?

    FWIW, these claims are usually made and promoted by gold sellers, and usually while the PM markets are either stagnant or heading downwards as they are now.

    Go figure.

    Hey Dan,educate me,just a bit.If all the people are selling and jumping ship,who bought the 10 billion? just asking?

    OK, OK We have heard this at least three times a week and we still have a working economy. At lest I can still get gas and food and my electricity is working.

    I’m still prepped so I’m not worried.

  19. TEST says:

    Off topic, but FYI

    If Islam is the religion of peace, why is the whole region engulfed in war, including Muslims killing Muslims? Why has Islam ALWAYS been violent, and why does it divide the world into Dar al Islam and Dar al harb (the house of WAR). Then there is this: MUSLIM female genital mutilation – of which there are an estimated 200 freaking MILLION cases More than half a million females in the United States have either undergone F.G.M./C. or are at serious risk; that’s double or triple earlier estimates, according to an analysis by the Population Research Bureau and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    The fascist left and their support of this horse manure disgusts me.

    As citizen journalists replace the leftist, lying lamestream media, it is important to provide sources for our information, so see the below. And then turn off your idiot leftist propaganda box, aka TV:

    Just wait until the radical Muslims come marching in to San Francisco to implement sharia law on the radical gays, or on the radical leftist feminists in NYC.

    The stock market reacts to the least little development or rumor. It is hard to get too alarmed. I have been reading about the conditions of the hospitals in Venezuela; the hospitals have nothing. Some Venezuelans go outside the country for medical care(if they can afford it). All preppers need to get as healthy as they can! SHTF is no time to go to a hospital except for gunshot wounds.

      When the wheels start coming off the bus, everything of value will be sold to prop up the impending fall. This includes precious metals. To me, the drop in PM pricing is a very good indication that if the wheels aren’t coming off, the tires are certainly going flat. JMHO

      There’s more sellers than buyers, making more supply than demand.

      That’s generally the cause of a price collapse in any commodity (or stocks, for that matter).

  27. Houston/Cypress/Katy/Shtf says:

    They know something stupid people don’t know. I know what they know and worse..In fact how serious is it. I told my woman that if she for some reason changes her mind, she is free to leave me and stay in the city and tough it out with the foreign and domestic soldiers..because replacing her with 1,000 desperate females is a piece of cake. I am one realistic person. Now matter how good things are going with any woman, for some reason, they will suddenly and can turn against you.. Look what just happened to Alex Jones. His wife divorsed him and is getting over 40,000 a month, and now she is trying to get custody of his kids to get more money. He met her are a meeting fighting the local government, and now she turned against him. I am nothing special. The only edge i have is that women like the way i look, and i get them easily.. But common sense makes me a different kind of person. Preppers i am telling you, prep to save your own ass just incase. The women is the problem.

    Prepping gives no one guaranteed survival, it increases your chance of survival alot. After listening to womens conservation in public and the things they talk about, the negative comments toward me, i have to fucking laugh..woman are stupid, mine included..not the none prepper ones on this site. Business is bad right now. The Trump high is over and has ended..as the retarted morons like Roger Stone, and piecnik, and others come on the alternative media making excuses for the establishment president..who is busy planning is own evacuation into the DUMBS and is prepped for the disaster. They are getting ready to wipe us off the map, destroy our cities, kill us, enslave the rest of us, and this is a fact of life. I will not be roaming ths streets of Houston, without food and water while my car is disabled in some parking lot, and now i am outside with homeless people. Now the new mayer has passed laws to arrest the homeless people in Houston. So now being homeless is not illegal, and you will be cited and fined and if you cant pay the ticket, straight to jail your ass will end up.. But you securing land, and not doing this in time when had more than enough time to use my money to buy the land makes me and idiot in 2014, 2015,2016.. You see this year folks. This is one year that i am not taking for granted. YOU BET YOUR ASS I WONT BE.

    Economist V, the 4 star General interview. This plan is still in full effect.

    HCKS..

    Negativity coming from me is reality in disguise.
