5 Stocks Insiders are Stashing

Stocks in this article: AEGR JNPR L EXP HLF

Juniper Networks has a market cap of $9.31 billion and an enterprise value of $7.14 billion. This stock trades at a premium valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 50.73 and a forward price-to-earnings of 16.27. Its estimated growth rate for this year is -33.6%, and for next year it's pegged at 40.5%. This is a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $3.15 billion and its total debt is $999.15 million.

A director just bought 16,665 shares, or about $299,000 worth of stock, at $18 per share.

From a technical perspective, JNPR is currently trending above its 50-day moving average and just below its 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock has been trending sideways for the last month and change, with shares moving between $19.22 on the upside and $15.77 on the downside. A high-volume move outside of that sideways pattern soon will likely lead to the next major trend for shares of JNPR.

If you're in the bull camp on JNPR, then I would look for long-biased once this stock manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $18.35 to $18.53 a share and then once it takes out $19.22 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 7,737,230 shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then JNPR will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $20 to $22 a share.

Loews

One name in the insurance complex that insiders are snapping up a decent amount of stock in is Loews (L). This company is engaged in commercial property & casualty insurance, operation of offshore oil & gas drilling rigs, production of natural gas and liquids, operation of interstate natural gas pipeline and operation of hotels. Insiders are buying this stock into some modest strength, since shares are up 9% so far in 2012.

Loews has a market cap of $16 billion and an enterprise value of $17.8 billion. This stock trades at a reasonable valuation, with a trailing price-to-earnings of 18.71 and a forward price-to-earnings of 11.86. Its estimated growth rate for this year is -33.6%, and for next year it's pegged at 92.8%. This is not a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $7.18 billion and its total debt is $8.88 billion.
