Numerous studies have examined whether there is evidence that U.S. insiders systematically trade on private information despite the legal deterrence. The consensus appears to be that insider purchases (but not sales) tend to be followed by positive abnormal stock price performance, particularly for small growth stocks.

SYSCO CORP (SYY) - PELTZ NELSON and Frank Joshua D are insiders of SYSCO CORP, check their transactions to see how they sell high and buy low. Would that be more persuasive than just buy or sell?
