Insider trades

Insider trades are the purchase & sale of shares in a company by the company's directors. On-market and some off-market trades are counted. Knowledgeable “insiders” are the best placed to know what a share is really worth. One or two trades may not be significant, but a larger number by different directors can warrant further investigation.

See the website for more details, such as the price and quantity of shares bought. For a full list of director trades by company over the last six months, see the members section. 

Companies with four or more directors buying recently.
Oz Minerals (ASX: OZL) is an Australian based copper miner.
A buyback, also known as a repurchase, is the purchase by a company of a portion of its outstanding shares. This reduces the number of its shares on the open market and increases the Earnings Per Share (EPS) of the remaining shares, all else being equal. The company will usually buy shares back when they see them as good value. For the latest buyback announcements see the website.
No new buybacks announced.
Short positions
Shorting a stock is betting the price will decrease. See the full list of shorted stocks here. The member's section has Five Day and monthly changes in short sales. 

The below table shows the top twenty most shorted stocks on the ASX. Data is lagged 5 days.
