Get the Inside Perspective on Stocks
INK stands for Insider News and Knowledge. Our Company Insider Alert (CIA) Interactive service is built on the legally reported buying and selling of public company executives and institutional investors (10% security holders).

CIA Interactive is a distinct subscription service that allows your portfolio to benefit from the tendency of insider buying and selling to outperform the market.

To make insider signals even more powerful, we combine them with valuation and momentum factors to help expand your investment opportunities.

The INK Edge Outlook ranks over 6,000 US and Canadian stocks based on our V.I.P. criteria:
  • Valuations
  • Insider commitment
  • Price momentum
We assign a Sunny outlook to the strongest stocks while weakest end up in the Rainy category. Those with promising outlooks are assigned a Mostly Sunny outlook while those with above average risk get a Cloudy reading. Stocks in the middle that could end up breaking to either the bright or stormy side are in the mixed category. Watch our INK Edge Outlook video for a quick overview .

The Madness of Crowds
Joe Walker is joined by John D. Turner and William Quinn, authors of "Boom and Bust: A Global History of Financial Crises", for a journey through the history of financial bubbles. Turner and Quinn explain their thinking on why financial manias occur using their theory on "the bubble triangle". They then share with Walker their in-depth analysis of particular manias such as the British Bicycle Mania and the Melbourne land bubble of the 1880s, using these and other examples to explore why bubbles have such profound economic, social, and political consequences.

Why follow the insiders?
During volatile markets, following the insiders can provide valuable insights for investors. On September 10, 2019 INK CEO Ted Dixon was interviewed by Jacqueline Hansen for the CBC National about the outlook for US technology shares. He deals with insider selling at FAANG stocks Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), Netflix (NFLX), and Alphabet (GOOGL). Click here to watch the interview.

This rules-based mid-cap oriented Index uses INK Research's proprietary INK Edge ® V.I.P. screening criteria of value, insider commitment and price momentum to identify 50 Toronto Stock Exchange listed stocks that offer attractive growth or value opportunities. The result is a benchmark of Canadian market opportunity as identified by insiders.

Inflation Hedge
The INK Canadian Insider Index has outperformed the broad Canadian market during relatively strong inflation periods. With Governments and central banks responding to COVID-19 with unprecedented amounts of fiscal and monetary stimulus, investors are becoming more concerned about potential inflation down the road. Watch our Spring 2020 index presentation to learn how Canadian mid-cap stocks as tracked by the INK CIN Index offer a way to hedge and potentially profit from rising inflation.

The INK CIN Index is used under by the Horizons Cdn Insider Index ETF (HII) under license.

INK Insider Indicators
Our exclusive INK indicators are a daily rolling survey about how insiders view the opportunity to make money in the market or in specific sectors.

When an indicator hits a peak, insiders are the most optimistic. Back in late fall 2008, INK's market indicators hit an all-time peak suggesting that stocks were deeply undervalued and presented a significant buying opportunity. Share prices subsequently rallied strongly, with many small cap names doubling in value over the next year.

INK's indicator coverage includes all top level North American Sectors and key industries.

Following insider sentiment is invaluable during periods of market volatility. Insider views on the market can help you confirm whether or not it's time to take money off the table during periods of euphoric rallies or to buy when stocks are falling.
