May 2024 144 Market Report

Aggregated 144 Market Volume

In May 2024, the total reported value of Form 144s rose 138% from April. This month-over-month increase in total value was driven by a surge in discretionary disclosures, with the number of unplanned filings rising by 183%. Likewise, the value of those discretionary Form 144s increased by 184% over the prior month and the total number of unplanned shares rose by 138%. Overall, this increased trading activity is not unusual for May, as many insiders are more free to trade after blackout periods end. Additionally, in comparison to May 2023, Form 144 value, shares, and number of filings increased across the board. Specifically, the total value of discretionary filings rose by 82%, perhaps reflecting insiders' urgency to capitalize on the market’s new highs.
