Bargain Hunters Take Note: Insider Cluster-Buying At KINS

By 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. Below is a table summarizing the insider buys that make up this "cluster":

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value
05/13/2019 William L. Yankus 2,000 $9.03 $18,068.00
05/13/2019 Floyd R. Tupper 2,000 $9.05 $18,100.00
05/13/2019 Carla D'andre 2,000 $8.95 $17,900.00
05/13/2019 Dale A. Thatcher President & CEO 25,000 $9.00 $225,000.00

The chart below shows the one year performance of KINS shares, versus its 200 day moving average. Note that KINS's low point in its 52 week range is $8.39 per share, with $20.60 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $10.11, with shares currently trading up about 6.9% on the day.
