Isn’t two months a long time in these markets!!

I was trying to find this post about the Easyjet (EZJ, 359p) Chairman Colin Chandlers track record in buying shares, and thought I’d written it only last month.

Andrew Harrison

Now we see Andrew Harrison, the CEO, last week buying 72,000 shares at 345p, putting £250k to work. He has increased his position by more than 1/3rd so far this year, having put in another £250k in January at 424p per share.

The stock fell ( collapsed?) last week after easyjet disclosed that it would suffer from jet fuel price rises. No kidding !! What do you pay these equity analysts to do? Any conversation with the company would have revealed how far forward they were hedged, and jet fuel prices are quoted daily.

I stick to my view in January that these guys are worth following.
