Insider Selling Spotlight: Skyworks Solutions Inc (NASDAQ:SWKS), Maxim Integrated Products Inc. (NASDAQ:MXIM), Duke Realty Corp (NYSE:DRE)

As an investor it is wise to keep track of what insiders at large and small companies are doing. After all, these insiders are executives who should understand their business better than any of the rest of us. Using the trades that these executives make as one of the major tools of your stock investment research is wise.

Quite simply there are all kinds of reasons that an insider would sell a stock, and there is no way of telling exactly why they are selling at the time. Consider the fact that the insider could be selling to fund the education of a child or buy a new home. On the other hand insider purchases are generally more reliable indicators because the main goal in buying a stock is to make money, whether you are an insider or not.

Knowing the role of the insider who made the transaction is important. This seems like it should be common sense, but some investors fail to pay attention to this very important detail. Heavy insider transactions by someone such as the CFO or CEO should carry much more weight than insider transactions by someone who is an outside director. Consider how much that insider should know about the current state of the industry and their businesses.
