Industry Rankings

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 (accumulating) first,

then neutrals (equal amount of buying

and selling) and finally sell side

(disposing). The sector ranking is

simply the difference between all buyers

and sellers across the entire industry

(not just the S&P 500) for the last 90

days. We provide both this weeks ranking

and last weeks ranking for comparison

purposes.
