The last 12 months of insider trading at Route Mobile
Over the past year, we can see that the biggest insider sale came from insider Priyanka Jaiswal for 33 million yen of shares, at around 1,116 yen per share. This means that an insider was selling shares at a price slightly lower than the current price (₹ 1,715). Generally, we find it disheartening when insiders sell below the current price, as it suggests they were happy with a lower valuation. Please note, however, that sellers can have a variety of reasons for selling, so we are not sure what they think about the stock price. It should be noted that this sale concerned 100% of Priyanka Jaiswal’s stake.

Does Route Mobile pride itself on high insider ownership?
I like to watch how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my perspective on their alignment with insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will have an incentive to build the business for the long term. Route Mobile insiders own 69% of the company, currently worth around 68 billion yen based on the recent share price. This type of large insider ownership usually increases the chances that the business will be run in the best interests of all shareholders.
