No. The reports are public information. Your company will make them available through the investor-relations section of its website. The forms are also available through the SEC's EDGAR system. Various companies compile, analyze, and sell the data.

The SEC publishes a monthly summary of the forms that shows the name of each person subject to the reporting requirements who has reported transactions, as well as the type of transaction and the number of shares involved. Often these summaries are scrutinized by plaintiffs' attorneys with a view toward instituting lawsuits against directors, officers, and shareholders under the Section 16(b) rules of short-swing profits liability under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
