Surgalign Holdings (NASDAQ:SRGA) stock is on the move Monday following news of the company’s CEO buying up shares of SRGA.
This news comes from filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Friday. In that filing, we see that Terry Rich, president and CEO of Surgalign Holdings, went on a buying spree for SRGA stock.
