Insider Trading Before New Issue Announcements
On average, insiders are net sellers of their firms' common stock for several months before announcements of new common stock and convertible debt issues. There is no evidence of abnormal insider trading before announcements of straight debt issues. These results suggest that the prospect of legal and market penalties does not deter a significant amount of insider trading before new issue announcements, and are consistent with the hypothesis that managers have superior information that is conveyed to the market through new equity issues.
