Desktop Service

Consists of Insider transaction data, analysis, and advanced presentation materials to provide additional insight. Our desktop service allows industry professionals to identify the trades that matter the most to them and the stocks most likely to outperform based on insider activity.

Smart Insider’s desktop service turns insider transaction data from merely interesting into a true source of investment insight

Our methods identify nuanced characteristics within discretionary trades and offer a way of achieving alpha, developed and proven through quantitative historical analysis.

Our analysis tools, offering derived data points, yield consistently valuable guidance on an insider’s view of the shares they own.

Such methods, based on the rigorous back-testing of key criteria, inform our high-performing Stock Signals.

Our customised delivery service ensures this approach fits any investment style and adds value to your research process.

Perspectives derived from insider trades

Around 2,000 transactions are reported by directors and senior managers across global markets daily. Most trades are considered to be noise, unlikely to prove indicative of future movements in share price.

Our team of skilled analysts, based in three time zones, apply quantitative and qualitative methods in order to identify meaningful transactions.

Our data inputs go beyond transaction-related announcements. The quality of our analysis has proven itself over decades.

Smart Insider has an impressive ten-year track record of generating alpha.
Use our Stock Ranks to guide your investment process and enhance your research strategy.

reliable information

We rate stocks based on whether the insider activity noticed has met our stringent tried and tested criteria.
Such activity is rare; most stocks are considered ‘Neutral’ the majority of the time because there are very few trades that meet our ranking standard.
Our stock analysts then consider key trades in a wider context in order to provide detailed stock commentary for our clients.

We consider contextual factors related to insider activity such as directors’ tenure, track record and the share price context.
These judgments do not consider additional factors related to the stock such as fundamentals or news flow. We leave that to our clients.
