Capital Southwest Corporation Named Top Dividend Stock With Insider Buying and 2.07% Yield
By Dividend Channel Staff, Monday, September 10, 4:02 PM ET
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 Capital Southwest Corporation (NASDAQ:CSWC), which saw buying by Director Christine Battist.
Back on August 21, Battist invested $15,093.94 into 794 shares of CSWC, for a cost per share of $19.01. In trading on Monday, shares were changing hands as low as $19.25 per share, which is 1.3% above Battist's purchase price. Capital Southwest Corporation shares are currently trading +0.52% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of CSWC shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, CSWC's low point in its 52 week range is $14.85 per share, with $19.643 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $19.40. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:
