The directors of a company tend to have a unique inside view into the business, so when directors make major buys, investors are wise to take notice. Presumably the only reason a director of a company 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 in this series we look at the largest insider buys by company directors over the trailing six month period, one of which was a total of $525.9K invested across 7 purchases by Donald E. Powell, Director at Bank of America Corp. (NYSE:BAC).

Powell bets big on BAC:

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value
02/08/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 18,000 $8.00 $144,079.30
02/14/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 10,000 $7.95 $79,500.00
02/29/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 10,000 $8.10 $81,000.00
05/03/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 5,000 $8.05 $40,250.00
05/04/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 5,000 $7.76 $38,800.00
05/14/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 12,000 $7.36 $88,320.00
06/08/2012 Donald E. Powell Director 7,445 $7.25 $53,976.25

Powell's average cost works out to $7.80/share. In trading on Monday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Bank of America Corp. (NYSE:BAC) and achieve a cost basis lower than Powell, with shares changing hands as low as $7.44 per share.
