This week we expanded our Fundamental API and added Insider Transactions as they reported in Form 4 to SEC. The data is available for all US companies that report Form 4. Insider trading involves trading in a public company’s stock by someone who has non-public, material information about that stock for any reason. In some cases, insider transactions could be very useful for making investment decisions, that’s why we added this data to our Financial APIs.
At the moment we support two transaction codes. The transaction code “P” — Purchase of securities on an exchange or from another person. And the transaction code “S” — Sale of securities on an exchange or to another person.
Supported fields for both transaction codes Purchase and Sale are:
- Report Date.
- Owner CIK, owner name, owner relationship, owner title (or officer title).
- Transaction date, transaction amount, transaction price, transaction type.
- Post-transaction amount.
- SEC Link.
There are more transaction codes in Forms 3, 4, and 5 and you can get all of them with detailed explanations in the SEC Investor Bulletin Forms 3, 4, and 5.
