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 September 14, Bruker Corp's Director, Joerg C. Laukien, invested $1,300,000.00 into 100,000 shares of BRKR, for a cost per share of $13.00. 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 Thursday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Bruker Corp (NASDAQ:BRKR) and achieve a cost basis 1.4% cheaper than Laukien, with shares changing hands as low as $12.82 per share. Bruker Corp shares are currently trading off about 4% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of BRKR shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, BRKR's low point in its 52 week range is $9.91 per share, with $17.10 as the 52 week high point that compares with a last trade of $12.83. 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
09/14/2012 Joerg C. Laukien Director 100,000 $13.00 $1,300,000.00
09/14/2012 Frank H. Laukien CEO/President 100,000 $13.00 $1,300,000.00

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, BRKR makes up 2.82% of the Dynamic Biotechnology & Genome Portfolio ETF (AMEX:PBE) which is trading relatively unchanged on the day Thursday.
