Only Eleven Dow Components With Recent Insider Buying, MCD is One of Them
By Dividend Channel Staff, Friday, December 21, 11:32 AM ET
The officers and directors of a company tend to have a unique inside view into the business, so when these insiders make purchases, investors are wise to take notice. Presumably the only reason for a company insider to choose to take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock in the open market, is that they expect to make money — maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both. Within the 30 components of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, only eleven companies have experienced such buying over the trailing six month period, one of which was McDonald's Corp (NYSE:MCD), where an investment totaling $25.1K was made by Director Richard H. Lenny. Click Here to Learn Which Other Ten Dow Components Also Had Recent Insider Buying »
