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.

Horizons Cdn Insider Index ETF (HII)
INK Research team members Henry Chan, Ted Dixon and Annie Wong joined Horizons ETFs Management (Canada) Inc. in opening the TSX on January 21, 2015 to mark the first day of trading for the Horizons Cdn Insider Index ETF (HII). The ETF seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the INK Canadian Insider Index, net of expenses.

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.
