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.

General Electric Co is trading up about 2.1% on the day Tuesday. Before this latest buy, Immelt made one other purchase in the past year, buying $1.00M shares for a cost of $25.04 a piece.
And at WhiteWave Foods (WWAV), there was insider buying on Friday, by Director Michelle P. Goolsby who purchased 10,000 shares for a cost of $28.83 each, for a trade totaling $288,300.
