This past sprint has seen the addition of Director Dealings to StockReports.

It's the first half of a push for greater coverage of company management and major shareholders. The work we're doing now should allow you to form a better picture of what the people closest to a company are doing with their shares.

As part of this, we're looking to bring out some totally new features that will be great additions to the StockReport.

Here is what's new:

Keep track of Insider activity with the Director Dealings tab

You can now keep track of director trades by clicking on the 'Directors dealings' tab at the bottom of the Accounts dropdown menu of the StockReport.

On this page you'll find all director deals in a company stretching as far back as 2009, but for now we only publish this data for UK-listed stocks.

Keeping on top of these dealings is an important due diligence step for many investors. It can be reassuring to know that management has 'skin in the game'. Additionally, large buys or sells from directors can send a powerful signal to the stock market, but the news can take a while to filter out to the market.

Catching this signal early puts you in a much better position to capitalise on the news.

For any trade, you can see the date of transaction, the name of the insider in question, the type of transaction, the volume, price and value of the trade, and the percentage ownership of the insider.
