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.
