Bargain hunters are wise to pay careful attention to insider buying, because although there are many various reasons for an insider to sell a stock, presumably the only reason they would use their hard-earned dollars to make a purchase, is that they expect to make money. Today we look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.
On Friday, Dominion Resources Inc (NYSE:D)'s Director, Mark J. Kington, made a $1.25M purchase of D, buying 25,000 shares at a cost of $49.82 each.

And on Tuesday, Director Richard B. Crowell purchased $166,700 worth of Hancock Holding Co. (NASDAQ:HBHC), purchasing 5,000 shares at a cost of $33.34 a piece.
