It's being republished as a bonus for TheStreet.com readers.It is an absolutely awful sign about a company if, after the recent broad selloff, insiders are still selling shares. At best, it indicates a lack of faith that the stock will recover soon. At worst, it could be a sign that executives are afraid that they had better get out now before shares fall even more. These are stocks that I'd suggest investors forget about bottom-feeding on. A little leg work could even uncover a decent short-selling opportunity.
