As the saying goes, there are many possible reasons for an insider to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy -- they expect to make money. So let's look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.
On Thursday, River Valley Bancorp (RIVR)'s Sr VP - Retail Banking, Jennifer J. Darnold, made a $3,075 purchase of RIVR, buying 150 shares at a cost of $20.50 each. So far Darnold is in the green, up about 6.8% on their buy based on today's trading high of $21.90. River Valley Bancorp is trading off about 0.1% on the day Tuesday.
