NEW YORK (Stockpickr) -- Following the moves of insiders can be quite lucrative. If they're buying their own company stock, investors may be glimpsing a sign of hidden value. But insiders are notoriously bad market timers. Their buying is often premature, and shares can fall much further before they rise up to reflect that insider bullishness.
To protect against that risk, it pays to looks at companies with insider buying and also a great deal stock price support, whether it's a very strong balance sheet or simply a very low multiple on profits or cash flow.
