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:
- 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.

Insiders and Company News
Are insiders buying or selling the news? See how insiders react to company news releases which you find on every company page. We provide news releases distributed by major newswire providers Business Wire
, Canada NewsWire
, and PR Newswire
. Combining company news with insider buying or selling can be a powerful investing tool. If insiders are selling after bad news, shouldn't you be too? On the other hand, if news is good, and insiders keep buying it could signal a growth opportunity!

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.
