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 December 14, Solar Capital Ltd.'s Director, Steven Hochberg, invested $101,752.50 into 5,000 shares of SLRC, for a cost per share of $20.35. 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 Solar Capital Ltd. (NASDAQ:SLRC) and achieve a cost basis 4.4% cheaper than Hochberg, with shares changing hands as low as $19.46 per share. Solar Capital Ltd. shares are currently trading up about 0.4% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of SLRC shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
