Less than 1% of Alphabet Inc Class A are currently held by insiders. Unlike Alphabet's institutional investors, corporate insiders most likely have a limit on the maximum percentage of share ownership.

The good rule to have in mind is that the maximum share ownership percentage of the corporate insiders should not surpass 25%. View all of Alphabet's insider trades

Alphabet Class A Insider Trading Activities

Some recent studies suggest that insider trading raises the cost of capital for securities issuers and decreases overall economic growth. Trading by specific Alphabet insiders, such as employees or executives, is commonly permitted as long as it does not rely on Alphabet'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 Alphabet insiders are required to file a Form 4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) when buying or selling shares of their own companies.

The market value of Alphabet Class A is measured differently than its book value, which is the value of Alphabet that is recorded on the company's balance sheet. Investors also form their own opinion of Alphabet's value that differs from its market value or its book value, called intrinsic value, which is Alphabet's true underlying value. Investors use various methods to calculate intrinsic value and buy a stock when its market value falls below its intrinsic value. Because Alphabet's market value can be influenced by many factors that don't directly affect Alphabet's underlying business (such as a pandemic or basic market pessimism), market value can vary widely from intrinsic value.
Please note, there is a significant difference between Alphabet's value and its price as these two are different measures arrived at by different means. Investors typically determine if Alphabet is a good investment by looking at such factors as earnings, sales, fundamental and technical indicators, competition as well as analyst projections. However, Alphabet's price is the amount at which it trades on the open market and represents the number that a seller and buyer find agreeable to each party.
