Insiders who bought Xi'an Haitian Antenna Technologies Co., Ltd. (HKG:8227) in the last 12 months may probably not pay attention to the stock's recent 10.0% drop.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we would consider it foolish to ignore insider transactions altogether.
Check out our latest analysis for Xi'an Haitian Antenna Technologies
Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider purchase was by Vice Chairman Ji Chen for HK$825k worth of shares, at about HK$0.50 per share. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of HK$0.54. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. We do always like to see insider buying, but it is worth noting if those purchases were made at well below today's share price, as the discount to value may have narrowed with the rising price. Happily, the Xi'an Haitian Antenna Technologies insider decided to buy shares at close to current prices. Ji Chen was the only individual insider to buy shares in the last twelve months.

For a common shareholder, it is worth checking how many shares are held by company insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. Xi'an Haitian Antenna Technologies insiders own about HK$164m worth of shares. That equates to 16% of the company. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
The recent insider purchase is heartening. We also take confidence from the longer term picture of insider transactions. However, we note that the company didn't make a profit over the last twelve months, which makes us cautious. Once you factor in the high insider ownership, it certainly seems like insiders are positive about Xi'an Haitian Antenna Technologies. Nice! While we like knowing what's going on with the insider's ownership and transactions, we make sure to also consider what risks are facing a stock before making any investment decision.
