By selling 63 million Hong Kong dollars of Lajin Entertainment Network Group Limited (HKG:8172) at an average selling price of HK$0.32 over the past year, pundits seemed to have made the most of their holdings. After the share price fell 20% last week, the company’s market value fell by HK$105 million, but experts were able to mitigate their losses.
While we would never suggest that investors should base their decisions solely on what a company’s directors have been doing, we would consider it foolish to ignore internal transactions altogether.

Internal transactions of Lajin Entertainment Network Group during the past year
In the past twelve months, the largest single sale by a whistleblower was when the whistleblower, Nan Yu, sold HK$63 million worth of shares at a price of HK$0.32 per share. While we generally don’t like to see inside sales, it’s more of a concern if sales are made at a lower price. The good news is that this big sell-off was well above the current price of HK$0.098. Therefore, it is difficult to draw a solid conclusion from it. Nan Yu was the only insider to sell shares in the last twelve months.

Does Lajin Entertainment Network Group have high internal ownership?
Looking at the total insider holdings in a company can help inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders. I think it’s a good sign if the insiders own a significant amount of stock in the company. Our data indicates that members of the Lajin Entertainment Network Group own shares worth approximately HK$48 million (representing 12% of the company). However, it is possible that insiders may have an indirect interest through a more complex structure. While it’s better than nothing, we’re not overly impressed with these holdings.
