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.
