How do insiders get their star rating?  

Insiders are attributed a star ranking from 0 to 5, with 5 being the highest. The ranking is to give traders an idea of accuracy, and is based on 2 parameters: 

Expert Success Rate

The percentage of an insider’s transactions that resulted in a positive return.

Expert Average Return

The measure of the average return per insider transaction.

What’s the difference between informative and uninformative transactions? 

You’ll see in the tool that some transactions are labelled as informative and others are uninformative – this is important for investors.

Uninformative

Uninformative transactions indicate that an insider is buying or selling shares for reasons that do not necessarily indicate confidence in the company, such as a scheduled transaction or exercising share options.

Informative

Informative transactions are deliberately made by insiders, perhaps because they feel the stock is undervalued.
