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 August 10, Herbalife Ltd.'s Director, Carole Black, invested $163,410.00 into 3,000 shares of HLF, for a cost per share of $54.47. 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 Tuesday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) and achieve a cost basis 1.0% cheaper than Black, with shares changing hands as low as $53.94 per share. It should be noted that Black has collected $0.40/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently down 0.2% on their purchase from a total return basis. Herbalife Ltd. shares are currently trading up about 0.7% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of HLF shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, HLF's low point in its 52 week range is $31.26 per share, with $63.40 as the 52 week high point that compares with a last trade of $54.39. 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
08/04/2011 Carole Black Director 2,000 $59.45 $118,900.00
08/10/2011 Carole Black Director 3,000 $54.47 $163,410.00

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, HLF makes up 4.78% of the First Trust Consumer Staples AlphaDEX Fund ETF (NYSE:FXG) which is trading higher by about 0.7% on the day Tuesday.
