Introducing the INK No Go List

Introducing the INK No Go List

At INK Research, our mission is to help you make better investment decisions by tracking the legally reported buying and selling of public company executives, a group also known as corporate insiders. To help point investors in the right direction with their investments, we combine insider activity with valuations and momentum factors to identify which stocks might make the best investment destinations. 

The foundation of our process looks at insider commitment. We rank every stock on a standard INK measure of insider commitment which takes into account the number of common shares company officers and directors hold on a beneficial basis as reported via SEDI or the SEC along with recent buying or selling of company shares. It is a pretty straight forward concept. The more stock that key insiders own and are buying, the greater the insider commitment towards the firm.

You can find our insider commitment rankings in the INK Edge outlook summary for a stock on the INK and Canadian Insider websites.

As critical as holdings and buying are in assessing insider commitment, there is at least one more important consideration, and that is commitment to disclosure. In INK's view, insiders who seek to legally delay or intentionally fail to disclose significant transactions within normal filing requirements are seeking to gain an advantage which can tilt the playing field in favour of the insiders. INK believes strongly in pro-market principles, and that means a level playing field for all investors.
