According to Insider Cluster Buys, a Premium feature of GuruFocus, four stocks with a high number of unique insider buys during February and March are Camden National Corp. (CAC, Financial), Talis Biomedical Corp. (TLIS, Financial), Signify Health Inc. (SGFY, Financial) and Malvern Bancorp Inc. (MLVF, Financial).
GuruFocus' research articles mention that according to Fidelity Magellan Fund manager Peter Lynch, insiders may sell shares for a wide range of reasons, but purchase shares for just one reason: the belief that their company's stock price is due to increase.
The website's research also suggests that stocks that had multiple company directors and executives buying shares over the past few months signaled potential gains.
As such, investors may find opportunities in stocks that have seen multiple insiders purchase shares since February and early March. The number of unique insider buys tracks the number of buys from separate insiders: For example, if Insiders A, B and C each purchase shares in a company over the past month, the number of unique insider buys is three regardless of the number of buy transactions from the three insiders.
