Insider Trading Report: Tilly’s (TLYS)

Michael Henry, CFO at Tilly’s (TLYS), recently picked up 4,000 shares. The buy increased his stake by 16 percent, and came to a total cost of just under $29,000. This follows up on a 6,005 share buy from the director a few days before.

  • Special: Retire on these 3 stocks
  • This marks the first insider buy at the company since September 2020. Insiders were active buyers during the Covid selloff, and then have generally been sellers of shares in the past two years after shares rallied higher.

    Overall, insiders own about 1.6 percent of shares.

    The retail apparel chain has now slid 55 percent in the past year. Revenue is down 10 percent in the past year, but earnings have dropped over 90 percent in the same timeframe.

    Action to take: The drop in shares has led a valuation of 12 times earnings for the company, and shares now trade at just 0.3 times price to sales. It may be a bit early to buy shares under current market conditions, but investors should look at buying shares ahead of a market rebound.

  • For traders, the January $10 calls, last going for about $0.50, might get a little cheaper in the coming weeks. But shares stand to rebound strongly by January, and the options could lead to high-double-digit returns.
