As interesting as these insider trading numbers are, obviously insider buying should never be relied on alone for investing decisions. Actuant is down around 10% year to date but can 2016 be a positive one for the stock? In terms of analyst opinions: 1 is a strong buy, 3 are buys, and 5 are holds. Major competitors for this industrial machinery manufacturer include: Parker-Hannifin Corporation and Kennametal Inc. With global industrial production especially in China slowing down, it's questionable whether we will so continued growth in this sector and in this stock in particlualr.
