Play Video: One Reason For Insiders to Buy

If the video does not load after a few moments, Upgrade to the Latest Flash Player.

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 February 6, Aetna Inc.'s Exec. V.P., Local/Regional Bus, Karen Rohan, invested $199,869.29 into 4,035 shares of AET, for a cost per share of $49.53. 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.

In trading on Wednesday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Aetna Inc. (NYSE:AET) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Rohan, with shares changing hands as low as $49.40 per share. Aetna Inc. shares are currently trading off about 0.8% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of AET shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, AET's low point in its 52 week range is $34.58 per share, with $51.14 as the 52 week high point that compares with a last trade of $49.73. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value

The current annualized dividend paid by Aetna Inc. is $0.80/share, currently paid in quarterly installments, and its most recent dividend ex-date was on 01/08/2013. Below is a long-term dividend history chart for AET, which can be of good help in judging whether the most recent dividend with approx. 1.6% annualized yield is likely to continue.

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, AET makes up 5.86% of the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Healthcare Providers Index Fund ETF (AMEX:IHF) which is trading lower by about 0.1% on the day Wednesday.
