Snatch This Bargain Energy Stock With 4.2% Yield Even Cheaper Than CFO Hartman Did
By Energy Stock Channel Staff, Friday, November 18, 11:35 AM ET
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 18, Penn Virginia Corp.'s CFO, Steven A. Hartman, invested $9,000.00 into 1,000 shares of PVA, for a cost per share of $9.00. 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 Friday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Penn Virginia Corp. (PVA) and achieve a cost basis 42.0% cheaper than Hartman, with shares changing hands as low as $5.22 per share. It should be noted that Hartman has collected $0.06/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently down 41.3% on their purchase from a total return basis. Penn Virginia Corp. shares are currently trading off about 0.8% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of PVA shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, PVA's low point in its 52 week range is $4.35 per share, with $18.80 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $5.31. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:

The current annualized dividend paid by Penn Virginia Corp. is $0.22/share, currently paid in quarterly installments, and its most recent dividend ex-date was on 11/04/2011. Below is a long-term dividend history chart for PVA, which can be of good help in judging whether the most recent dividend with approx. 4.2% annualized yield is likely to continue.
According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, PVA makes up 1.34% of the S&P SmallCap Energy Portfolio ETF (NASDAQ:PSCE) which is trading lower by about 0.1% on the day Friday.
