Mobileye Global stock (ticker: MBLY) has experienced a moderate gain of approximately 4% so far this year. However, the journey hasn’t been without its ups and downs. Despite a strong performance in January following impressive fourth-quarter earnings, Mobileye stock stumbled in May following a disappointing quarterly report.
The roller coaster continued in June when former parent company Intel (INTC) announced the sale of a significant portion of Mobileye stock by one of its subsidiaries. Nevertheless, in August, Mobileye received a major boost when Polestar Automotive selected the company to provide its self-driving technology for the 2025 Polestar 4 vehicle.
Adding further intrigue to the story, former U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill, who now serves as a director at Mobileye, recently purchased a large block of shares. On October 31, McCaskill acquired 27,819 Mobileye shares at an average price of $35.95 each, totaling $1 million. In addition to this investment, she already owns 50,523 Mobileye shares held in a personal account.
It is worth noting that McCaskill’s stock purchase was an initial transaction made through a trust she controls. Neither McCaskill nor Mobileye provided any comment regarding this purchase.
Since October 2022, when Mobileye went public at $21 per share, McCaskill has been an active member of the company’s board as a director. She initially purchased 41,000 shares during the company’s offering, totaling $861,000.
