Pick Up This Bargain 7.2% Yielder Even Cheaper Than Sr. VP and Co-CIO Wulfsohn Did

By Dividend Channel Staff, Wednesday, September 23, 3:27 PM ET

There's an old saying on Wall Street about insider buying: there are many possible reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy. Back on August 7, MFA Financial, Inc.'s Sr. VP and Co-CIO, Bryan Wulfsohn, invested $100,700.00 into 37,500 shares of MFA, for a cost per share of $2.69. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because 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.
