Aggregate demand by insiders predicts time-series variation in the value premium. Insider trading forecasts the value premium because insiders sell (buy) when markets-especially growth stocks-are overvalued (undervalued). This article suggests that investors can use signals from aggregate insider behavior to adjust style tilts and exploit sentiment-induced mispricing.
