Industry Rankings

This section highlights which industries show the most insider activity

in the accumulation or distribution of stock. We use the S&P industry

categories and rank the buy side (accumulation) first, then neutrals

(equal amount of buying and selling) and finally sell side (disposing).

The sector is simply the difference between all buyers and sellers

across the entire industry (not just the S&P 500) for the last days. We

provide both this weeks ranking and last weeks ranking for comparison

purposes.
