The Widget in the Spotlight Today is the Insider Transactions 12 Weeks Widget.

This Widget shows the percentage increase or decrease from the previous 12 weeks in Insider Transaction Activity, The Number of Buy Transactions, The Number of Shares Bought, The Number Sell Transactions and the Number of Shares Sold.

With this information being published quarterly the amount of information available from Zacks is extremely limited. That being said however there are numerous other Insider sales activity widgets available on the platform.

One can search for these other widgets by accessing the widget tab on the far right of the platform and entering in the word insider. The following widgets will then appear in addition to this one, Insider Transactions 4 and 24 Weeks; All Insiders 1 Day, I Week, and 1 Month, Officers Directors Insiders, I Day, 1 Week and 1 Month. And Officers Insiders 1 Day, 1 Week and 1 Month.

One can also create a Dashboard of all of these Insider Transaction widgets by going to the Dashboards Tab, directly under your log in name and then at the bottom of the dashboard screen clicking on the + symbol and then filling in the necessary information and adding the widgets by clicking on the add widget tab for each Insider Transaction Widget that you are adding and saving the dashboard.

Also, all of these Insider Transaction Widgets can be viewed individually by entering in the stock symbol for the stock being researched within the widget or at the upper right of your screen in the Stock search tab.
