A financial services player that insiders are snapping up shares in here is Home Loan Servicing Solutions (HLSS), which engages in acquiring mortgage servicing assets, primarily subprime and Alt-A mortgage servicing rights and associated servicing advances. Insiders are buying this stock into some decent strength, since shares are up over 15% during the last six months.

Home Loan Servicing Solutions has a market cap of $226.30 million and an enterprise value of $560.72 million. This stock trades at a cheap valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 12.82 and a forward price-to-earnings of 12.08. Its estimated growth rate for next year is 1.5%. This is not a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $36.46 million and its total debt is $369.03 million. This stock sports a dividend yield of 7.7%.

A director just bought 51,000 shares, or about $801,000 worth of stock, at $15.71 to $15.75 per share. That same director also just bought 42,221 shares, or about $657,000 worth of stock, at $15.57 per share.

From a technical perspective, HLSS is currently trading above both its 50-day and 200-day moving averages, which is bullish. This stock has been uptrending very strong for the past two months, with shares moving from a low of $13.18 to a recent high of $16.15 a share. During that uptrend, shares of HLSS have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action.

If you're bullish on HLSS, then I would look for long-biased trades once this stock pulls back closer to its 50-day moving average of $14.37 a share. This stock recently broke out above $15.92 a share, but it is now pulling back and is likely heading toward its 50-day, where it will offer up a better long entry.

If you don't get that pullback in HLSS, then traders should look to get long once the stock triggers a breakout above $16.15 a share with high volume. Look for volume on that move that hits near or above its three-month average action of 210,712 shares. Any move above $16.15 will push HLSS into all-time high territory, which is bullish technical price action
