What is Insider Alpha?

Academic studies using 10 years worth of US company insider trading data suggest that corporate insiders earn above normal profits on their trades. The findings suggest that company insiders as a group are better informed than the average investors about the prospects for their respective firms. “Insider Alpha Return” reflects our belief that the tracking and reporting of company insider trades can help investors make better informed decisions about security selection and thereby improve their investment returns.

Why insider trading research is becoming more important?

Investment brokers dominate the capital markets research industry in US, Canada, UK, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Japan, and China. Individual have no access or cannot afford to access institutional equity research.
 
Recent studies indicated an inverse relationship exists between analysts’ “buy” recommendations and subsequent stock performance.
 
Conflict exists between brokerage research division and investment banking division; the so-called “Chinese Wall” remains rather porous.
 
Institutional investors usually receive their research from brokerage firms free of charge by placing trades through them (soft dollar arrangements).
 
Small and micro-cap investors have very little opportunity to access quality analytical research.
 
Since institutional investors are less interested in micro-cap stocks due to liquidity issues, brokerage houses are less likely to cover the micro-cap sector. Company insider trading research may becomes the ONLY source of information reflecting the business condition of micro-cap companies.
 

New regulation has created an opportunity for independent insider trade research

Recent regulations in the US, UK, HK, and Canada require insiders to report their trades within days of transaction (48 hours in the US under SOX). Reported insider trade information is published in government sponsored websites.
 
Insider trading is becoming a major component in equity analysis – insider trading filing sections are found in Yahoo, MSN Money, and Global & Mail. However, all these reported filings are incomplete hence do not add analytical value.
 
Insider research is particularly valuable to small and micro-cap sector investors due to the inherent lack of transparency in such company operations.
 
Therefore, there is a corresponding high demand for robust quality insider daily trading reports among individual investors, institutional investors, investment advisors, and portfolio managers.
 

What is our distinct competent?

There are some respectable amounts of free financial information available in the internet domain; however, almost 99% of the financial information is in “raw data” form. Only experienced investors with advanced data modeling knowledge or institutional research analysts with strong programming and application development team are able to convert the raw financial data into usable research reports; but they do not share their research with others as the cost to generate such research reports are very high.
