A company's own top management tend to have the best inside view into the business, so when company officers make major buys, investors are wise to take notice. 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 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 the ''top brass'' over the trailing six month period, one of which was a total of $312.1K invested across 2 purchases by Jeffrey A. Graves, CEO at MTS Systems Corp (NASDAQ:MTSC).

Graves bets big on MTSC:

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value
03/15/2018 Jeffrey A. Graves President and CEO 4,000 $53.58 $214,300.00
05/09/2018 Jeffrey A. Graves President and CEO 2,000 $48.90 $97,800.00

Graves's average cost works out to $52.02/share. In trading on Wednesday, bargain hunters could buy shares of MTS Systems Corp (NASDAQ:MTSC) and achieve a cost basis lower than Graves, with shares changing hands as low as $52.00 per share. Shares of MTS Systems Corp were changing hands at $52.25 at last check, trading up about 0.2% on Wednesday. The chart below shows the one year performance of MTSC shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
