Who Is Buying & Selling

Insider buying at Migao Add to ...



This month, China fertilizer firm Migao has had to deal with earnings results that did not meet expectations, and the fallout from the Sino-Forest short-selling drama. The combination of bad news has sent shares tumbling about 40 per cent since the end of May. However, insiders are buying. Since June 10, six insiders have bought in the public market. Notable purchases included chief executive officer Liu Guocai picking up 135,000 shares between $3.73 and $4.01. Newly appointed director Wu Jianmin bought 200,000 shares between $3.71 and $3.95.
