In this series, we look through the most recent Dividend Channel ''DividendRank'' report, and then we cherry pick only those companies that have experienced insider buying within the past six months. The officers and directors of a company tend to have a unique insider's view of the business, and presumably the only reason an insider would 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. So when stocks turn up that see insider buying, and are also top ranked, investors are wise to take notice. One such company is Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. (NASDAQ:ARLP), which saw buying by Vice President and Controller Robert J. Fouch.

Back on November 30, Fouch invested $455,959.20 into 8,000 shares of ARLP, for a cost per share of $56.99. In trading on Wednesday, shares were changing hands as low as $63.30 per share, which is 11.1% above Fouch's purchase price. Alliance Resource Partners, L.P. shares are currently trading -0.66% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of ARLP shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
