It seems TRTC’s own team may consider this stock seriously undervalued as further insider buying has been reported. Its own CEO, Michael Nahaas, purchased 50,000 shares of TRTC stock in a transaction on the open market, dated to December 30th, 2018.

Not to be confused with insider trading, insider buying is perfectly legal. In fact, insider buying usually excites investors. It suggests that the company’s own team believe it to be undervalued, meaning potential gains are on the horizon.

However, because these TRTC stock transactions were made before cannabis was made legal in Canada, it was easy to assume they were made on the back of hype. After all, everyone was buying cannabis stocks during that time!

The Bottom Line

Nahaas’ investment is more exciting because the hype is over and the industry is in full swing. Therefore this purchase has created a different sentiment across the market. This is why this move is more interesting and has sparked a fire under TRTC stock.
