10 Stocks With Bullish Institutional And Insider Buying Activities

Stocks in this article: AUMN BAS GHDX HZNP INFI MCP PCO RPRX THC URRE

Looking for popular stocks with big potential upside? We find that stocks receiving bullish attention from company insiders and hedge funds, that is to say both groups have been buying up stocks, is a good indicator. With that in mind, we screened for stocks showing these signs.

Here’s more detail on what we screened for and why:

Insider Activity

Many analysts follow insider buying trends because, after all, those who work for the company tend to know more about their companies than anyone else. Their investment activity is closely monitored and can tell us a lot about where they feel the business is heading.

Here we look at insider buying as a percentage of the share float. Companies experiencing insider buying over the past six months provide an indicator that insiders think the stock is undervalued at current levels. Inversely, insider selling serves as a negative indicator.  

Institutional Activity

Institutional investors are also known as “big money” investors. They manage large pools of money such as mutual funds and hedge funds. When they invest in stocks, they can invest hundreds of thousands of dollars or more at one time. These transactions, called “block trades,” can have a significant effect on share prices.

Because institutional investors handle such large amounts of money, it is easy enough to assume that the big money managers know more than the average investor. This is why these investors are also sometimes referred to as “smart money,” and why their trades are so closely followed.
