Bargain Hunters Take Note: Insider Cluster-Buying At KINSBy Dividend Channel Staff, Wednesday, May 15, 1:46 PM ET
A particularly strong insider buying signal is what we call a "cluster-buy" where three or more different insiders make open market purchases within a short period of one another. At Kingstone Companies Inc (NASDAQ:KINS), 4 different insiders purchased 31,000 shares at an average price of $9.00/share, for a total of $279,068, with the most recent purchase on May 13, 2019.
Presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money. So when multiple insiders all decide to make purchases around the same time, it could be a strong indication that the stock is undervalued.
