Apple insider trading: Tim Cook vs. Srouji Johny

The chart below comes from TipRanks ($), which divides trades by Apple insiders into two categories:

  • Uninformative, like the restricted stock units Tim Cook was awarded last week as part of a pre-existing compensation plan
  • Informative, trades timed deliberately to take advantage of a buying or selling opportunity

According to SEC filings, informative trades were made over the past three months by these Apple insiders:

  • Srouji Johny. Head of hardware technologies, led design of the A4 chip
  • Craig Federighi. Head of software engineering (iOS and MacOS)
  • Arthur Levinson. Board member, former CEO of Genentech
  • Bruce Sewell, Apple’s top lawyer
  • Eddy Cue, Apple’s chief content dealmaker

My take: Ignore the headlines about Tim Cook’s windfall. Keep your eye on Sruiji Johny.

    It’s kinda hard to read the amounts and particularly the order of magnitude, when the full number is truncated.. Might be best to do this in “thousands of dollars” units.

    I know it’s not your chart, but Levinson isn’t just any board member, he’s chairman.
