German inside trading: May 2014

Germany, Inside trading, May, 2014

The inside activity here in German has been fairly high during May. Generally it is an interesting month with several companies paying out dividends but there is also the saying "sell in May and go away" which I know that some people follow but I was just hoping that German managers did not think that short term. So what did then happen?

The undertakings were as follows:

Invision - sold shares
Rational - bought and sold shares, analysis of Rational.
United Labels - bought and sold shares
MTU Aero Engines - bought shares
Highlight Communications - bought shares

Allgeier - bought shares

Conclusion: Large activity with Invision and it seems as if the Grenke family are buy back the shares of Grenkeleasing. Happily it turned out as if my first conclusion was wrong. The German managers did not follow the sell in may and go away. Instead they have been heavily buying into their companies and this is good news! It even makes me looking forward to the Q2 and Q3 results for 2014.
