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 $886.9K invested across 4 purchases by Timothy M. Mayleben, CEO at Esperion Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:ESPR).

Mayleben bets big on ESPR:

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value
03/29/2019 Timothy M. Mayleben President & CEO 5,000 $40.00 $200,000.00
06/28/2019 Timothy M. Mayleben President & CEO 5,000 $46.00 $230,000.00
08/01/2019 Timothy M. Mayleben President & CEO 5,000 $39.56 $197,800.00
09/06/2019 Timothy M. Mayleben President & CEO 7,500 $34.55 $259,106.60

Mayleben's average cost works out to $39.42/share. In trading on Friday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Esperion Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:ESPR) and achieve a cost basis lower than Mayleben, with shares changing hands as low as $36.11 per share. Shares of Esperion Therapeutics Inc were changing hands at $36.65 at last check, trading off about 0.1% on Friday.
