We made some money out of Experian (EXPN, 474p) after buying in November 2007 following directors purchases. We took profits in December 2008, follwing a share sale by non exec David Tyler, recording a 50% outperformance relative to the FTSE 100 share index.

Since then however, Experian shares have continued to perform well, rising by 13% with the market only just in positive territory, rising a paltry 1.6%.

Two transactions on May 20th and 21st have caused us to be more cautious on Experian:

  1. John Peace, the Chairman, has exercised options over 353,000 shares and sold them all, realising 1.75m pounds. He maintains his position at 1.1 million shares.
  2. David Tyler, the non exec who sold shares in December, has sold a further 100,000 shares at 479.55p.
