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 January 26, Piper Jaffray Companies's Head, Fixed Income Services, Martin Bradley Winges, invested $115,709.52 into 5,269 shares of PJC, for a cost per share of $21.96. 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 Piper Jaffray Companies (NYSE:PJC) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Winges, with shares changing hands as low as $21.93 per share. Piper Jaffray Companies shares are currently trading off about 0.6% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of PJC shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, PJC's low point in its 52 week range is $16.72 per share, with $44.56 as the 52 week high point that compares with a last trade of $22.00. 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

01/26/2012 Martin Bradley Winges Head, Fixed Income Services 5,269 $21.96 $115,709.52

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, PJC makes up 2.55% of the iShares Dow Jones U.S. Broker-Dealers Index Fund ETF (AMEX:IAI) which is trading lower by about 0.5% on the day Tuesday.
