2009 insider purchases greater than current 03/16/09 price

Hopefully this data proves useful. I looked for direct inside purchases in 2009 for an average price greater than current quote on 03/13/09. My universe was 4,520 companies. Many were smaller companies.

The screen also included

EV/Price <1.50
Shorts as a percentage of float <10
Price > Average price paid by insiders
Direct open mareket purchases
Average 3 years shares outstanding / TTM shares outstanding > .94

Their will be a link providing fundamental data. But in my opinion the information needs further analysis.

Only the top results ranked by 2009 Inside Purchases/EV

How do I do a screen using insider purchases? Can't find the field on either capital iq or bloomberg. Great way to search, thanks!

Hi Snamiri

I do a combination of my own program coupled with grabbing the value based investments only and sometimes posting the related financial data.

Are you serious Bloomberg terminal or Capital IQ doesnt report insider transactions? that sounds weak given the cost of these products. I'm going to create a new post for stocks under 100 million in enteprise value with significant net positive insider activity from 2010 to current. it should go out tomorrow.
