  • This marks the first insider activity since December, when a company director bought 850 shares for a cost of $26,129. Broadwood Partners was active acquiring shares throughout last year as well. The last insider sale occurred in March 2023.

    Overall, STAAR insiders own 0.7 percent of shares, and institutions own the rest of the outstanding float.

    The producer of implantable eye lenses saw its share price get cut in half over the last year. That’s about in-line with the 53 percent drop in overall earnings for STAAR over the same timeframe.

    However, the company has remained profitable, and revenues rose by 6 percent last year.

  • Special: $1,300 into $45,000 in just 4 MONTHS?!
  • Action to take: STAAR shares are richly valued at 46 times forward earnings, and without a return to faster growth, the long-term downtrend in shares may continue. The company does not pay a dividend at present.

    For traders, shares have been in a very short-term uptrend, but it looks like to falter.

    With more downside likely, a trade like the March $30 puts, last going for about $2.20, could see mid-to-high double-digit returns in the coming months.
