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 cash to make a purchase, is that they expect to make money. Today we look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.
On Wednesday, American Realty Capital Properties (NASDAQ:ARCP)'s EVP and general counsel, Richard A. Silfen, made a $59,842 buy of ARCP, purchasing 4,850 shares at a cost of $12.34 a piece.

Before this latest buy, Silfen made one other buy in the past year, purchasing $88,484 shares at a cost of $11.80 a piece.
And on Monday, Vice President Matthew Bailey Golden bought $53,040 worth of Capital Southwest Corporation (NASDAQ:CSWC), buying 1,500 shares at a cost of $35.36 each.
