Huntington Bancshares Named Top Dividend Stock With Insider Buying and 2.72% Yield (HBAN)
By Dividend Channel Staff, Wednesday, June 6, 1:56 PM ET
In this series, we look through the most recent Dividend Channel ''DividendRank'' report, and then we cherry pick only those companies that have experienced insider buying within the past six months. The officers and directors of a company tend to have a unique insider's view of the business, and presumably the only reason an insider would choose to take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock in the open market, is that they expect to make money — maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both. So when stocks turn up that see insider buying, and are also top ranked, investors are wise to take notice. One such company is Huntington Bancshares, Inc (NASDAQ:HBAN), which saw buying by Sr EVP of Principal Sub Daniel B. Benhase.
Back on May 10, Benhase invested $64,996.00 into 10,000 shares of HBAN, for a cost per share of $6.50. In trading on Wednesday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Huntington Bancshares, Inc (NASDAQ:HBAN) and achieve a cost basis 8.8% cheaper than Benhase, with shares changing hands as low as $5.93 per share. Huntington Bancshares, Inc shares are currently trading +2.46% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of HBAN shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, HBAN's low point in its 52 week range is $4.46 per share, with $6.83 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $6.04. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:
