4 Resource Juniors with Big Insider Buying Last Week

The TSXV-listed resource juniors we’ve dug up have seen significant insider buying by the CEO and board members during the stock market selloff last week

SmallCapPower | March 18, 2020: Insiders are defined as any person with access to key company information before it is released to the public, or someone who owns more than 10% of a company’s shares. Insiders include individuals such as management, officers, and directors. Government bodies require companies to report this information in a timely manner, giving investors a sense of insider activity within a company. Insider buying when a company is in a bear market shows management’s confidence in the company overcoming the downturn. The four TSXV-listed resource juniors we have discovered today have seen significant insider buying during the recent market selloff.
