The 14A filing is a Securites and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing detailing insider ownership of a corporation.
The Motley Fool generally takes these statements very seriously, as we believe there's almost no substitute for the value and importance of executives owning a piece of their own corporation. We feel much more comfortable owning stock when management owns a lot, and less comfortable owning stock when management doesn't.
Simple as that.
Get used to using and reading 14A filings.
