In fact, the total percentage of the outstanding shares owned by insiders and 5% owners is an astounding 49%! Looking at recent purchases by this elite group since Sept. 14, 2012 (the most recent purchase being last Friday, Dec. 7) I noticed that the Laukiens' purchased 250,000 shares between the price of $13 and Dr. Laukien's purchase on Friday of 50,000 shares at $13.97.
Bruker had a very profitable quarter ending Sept. 30. Year-over-year quarterly earnings increased by more than 100% and quarterly revenue grew by 7%. Total Cash improved to more than $242 million. Look at the impressive one-year chart of BRKR illustrating its price and trailing 12-month earnings rebound from just six weeks ago.
