Soluna Holdings’ stock has dropped approximately 22% this year. Following the latest announcement, the shares of the Bitcoin mining data center rose from $0.2001 to $0.229 yesterday, reflecting a surge of 14%.
The largest single purchase by an insider within the last twelve months was over $52,000 worth of shares at a price of US$3.38 per share by CEO and Director Michael Toporek. That is, an insider wanted to buy shares even if the price was greater than US$0.27 (the press time price).
It means that the perspective of insiders may have shifted since then, but it demonstrates that they were optimistic at the time.
