Kilroy Realty Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
The Executive VP, Heidi Roth, made the biggest insider sale in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for US$900k worth of shares at a price of US$70.92 each. While we don’t usually like to see insider selling, it’s more concerning if the sales take place at a lower price. The silver lining is that this sell-down took place above the latest price (US$57.93). So it may not tell us anything about how insiders feel about the current share price.

Insider Ownership of Kilroy Realty
Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. Kilroy Realty insiders own 1.8% of the company, currently worth about US$123m based on the recent share price. I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
