Halfords Group plc (LON:HFD) Insiders Increased Their Holdings
We haven't counted the number of times insiders have accumulated stakes in a company that is doing significantly better. On the other hand, it wouldn't be worth mentioning that insider selling is known to precede tough times for a company. So we're going to look to see if Insiders bought or sold shares in Halfords Group plc (LON: HFD).
What is insider selling?
It is perfectly legal for company insiders, including board members, to buy and sell shares in a company. However, rules apply to insider trading and certain disclosures are required.
Insider trading isn't the most important thing when it comes to long-term investments. However, logic dictates that you should be careful about whether insiders are buying or selling stocks. For example, a study by Harvard University found that "insider buying generates unusual returns of more than 6% per year".

Halfords Group insider transactions last year
Last year we could see that the largest insider buy was made by independent non-executive chairman Keith Williams for £ 77,000 worth of shares in the UK, which is roughly £ 1.54 in the UK. Although the purchase was made at a significantly lower price than the most recent price (£ 2.42), we still think insider buying is positive. Since the shares were bought at a lower price, that purchase doesn't tell us much about how insiders view the current share price.
