7 Financial Stocks Insiders Are Buying

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Insider trading has been a profitable investment strategy for more than 50 years. Insider trading is most profitable when several insiders buy around the same time.

1. Camco Financial Corp (CAFI): Six insiders purchased CAFI stock on Oct. 29 at $2.07 per share.

2. Premierwest Bancorp (PRWT): Two insiders purchased PRWT stock in October and a third one bought in September. The last purchase was made by company director James Patterson, on Oct. 29 at $0.39 per share.
