Monitoring Microsoft's insider sentiment can offer insights into its future performance, as insiders often have access to more information about their company's operations, financial health, and upcoming initiatives than the general public. However, it's essential to note that insider trading is regulated by securities laws, and insiders are required to disclose their trades publicly to ensure transparency and prevent unfair advantages based on non-public information.

Acquired vs Disposed

Filed vs Not Filed

Insider sentiment refers to the collective sentiment or feeling of Microsoft's insiders - typically its officers, directors, and beneficial owners holding more than a certain percentage of the company's stock - about the future prospects of Microsoft. This sentiment is often gauged based on the trading activities of these insiders. If insiders are purchasing more shares of their own company, it may be interpreted as a bullish sentiment, indicating that they believe Microsoft's stock will rise in value. Conversely, if insiders are selling shares, it might be seen as bearish, suggesting they expect the stock price to drop.

Microsoft Insider Trading History

Some recent studies suggest that insider trading raises the cost of capital for securities issuers and decreases overall economic growth. Trading by specific Microsoft insiders, such as employees or executives, is commonly permitted as long as it does not rely on Microsoft's material information that is not in the public domain. Local jurisdictions usually require such trading to be reported in order to monitor insider transactions. In many U.S. states, trading conducted by corporate officers, key employees, directors, or significant shareholders must be reported to the regulator or publicly disclosed, usually within a few business days of the trade. In these cases, Microsoft insiders must file a Form 4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) when buying or selling shares of their own companies.
