5 Stocks with Substantial Insider Buying

Insider trading is most profitable when several insiders buy around the same time. Academic studies have shown that insider purchases beat index funds by more than 7 % per year  when there are several insiders purchasing. Insider Monkey, your source for free insider trading data, compiled the list of stocks where at least two insiders made recent purchases. Here are the stocks with substantial insider purchases:

Hedge funds snatched 6% of GM’s outstanding shares and amassed a $3.4 Billion position during the last three months of 2010. There were 112 hedge funds with GM positions at the end of December. John Griffin’s Blue RigdeWilliam Ackman’s Pershing Square, George Soros, David Tepper’s Appaloosa, Roberto Mignone’s Bridger Management,  Richard Perry’s Perry Capital, and Leon Cooperman’s Omega Advisors are among the several high profile hedge funds with GM positions.
