Abe I think you are reading too much into this. What is it you think their "impure motives" are? I still have no idea what you think they were trying to achieve?

Dawe bought around this time last year too - he also paid near the top at the time (78 cents) and within a few days it had dropped 10%. Was this also part of your thesis? (You should note that within a month it hit 88 cents). Racine also bought on 3 Jan 2013 at 87 cents - did he forget the plot?

I've no idea what you are talking about regards Feb 12 - there were no insider trades that day.

During 2012 both these guys had plenty of chances to buy at lows (or at highs) but didn't. They clearly have windows of opportunity to buy and sometimes it fits their investment objectives and sometimes it doesn't. THEY ARE NOT TRADERS (at least not in BRD).

Insider trades represents under 3% of the trading volume so far this year and if previous years repeat insiders will trade less than 1/3rd of 1% - BELIEVE ME THERE ARE PLENTY OF WORSE TRADERS AROUND.
