Two Technology Stocks That Insiders Love

At InsiderMonkey, we track insider purchases every day. It is very important to our investment strategy, just like keeping an eye on hedge fund activity. Therefore, in this article, I will look into two tech companies that have seen insiders buy their stock over the past few days.

First off is Sonus Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:SONS), an $811 million market cap supplier of Session Initiation Protocol-based communication equipment including VoIP, video and Unified Communications through IP networks. On April 29, two insiders purchased the company’s stock. Raymond Dolan, CEO and President, acquired 1.0 million shares of the company, for prices ranging from $2.89 to $3.09 per share, inclusive. Following these transactions, Mr. Dolan owns around 3.08 million shares of the company, worth more than $10 million. The other active insider was Mark Greenquist, CFO, who bought 15,000 shares of Common Stock, for $2.9498 per share. He now holds 265,000 shares of Sonus Networks.

Other prominent investors with millionaire stakes in Sonus Networks are Jim Simons, Donald Chiboucis, Chuck Royce, Israel Englander, and Cliff Asness.

Second in this list is Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ:DWCH), a $140.5 million market cap company engaged in the design, development, manufacturing, marketing, and support of business computer software, mainly for the information optimization and business service management markets. Over the past couple of days, the company’s Vice President and Controller, Sanjay Mistry, acquired 6,000 shares of the company. On April 28, he purchased 1,000 shares for $12.90 each.
