Another stock that insiders are loading up on is Kennedy-Wilson (KW), a diversified, international real estate company that provides investment and real estate services. Insiders are paying up big to own shares of KW since the stock is up over 7% so far in 2011.

Kennedy-Wilson has a market cap of $479.87 million and an enterprise value of $654.40 million. This stock trades at a price-to-sales of 9.81 and a price-to-book of 1.42. This is far from a cash-rich company; the total cash position on its balance sheet is $153.07 million, and its total debt is $327.59 million. The stock also sports a dividend yield of 1.5%.

A director just bought 65,000 shares, or $689,494 worth of stock, at $10.50 to $10.73 per share. This same director also just bought another 10,000 shares, or $106,800 worth of stock, at $10.68 per share.

>>6 Stocks Under $10 Moving Higher

From a technical standpoint, KW is currently trading below both its 50-day moving and 200-day moving averages, which is bearish. This stock recently sold off hard from its October high of $12.85 to a recent low of $10.42 a share. Basically, shares of KW have a pattern of finding big buying support anytime the stock moves near $10 to $10.50 a share and its sells off and hits resistance when it trades over $12 a share.

If you're bullish on KW, I would look to get long whenever the stock is trading under $11 a share. I would simply use a mental stop just below $10 in case that range low is ever broken. I would then add to any long positions once the stock takes out $11.17 (50-day) and $11.24 (200-day) a share with high-volume. Look for volume that's tracking in near or above its three-month average action of 145,833 shares.
