High Yield Dividend Stocks With Significant Insider Buying Activity

Are you looking for high yield dividend stocks? The payout can be extremely attractive, but how do you know if you're buying into a reliable company? One great sentiment indicator for stocks comes from company insiders. [More Investing Ideas for Dividend Stocks: Target Rock Advisors Update List of Sustainable Utility Leaders]

Using these ideas we created a list of high yield dividend stocks with significant net purchases from company insiders over the past six months.

Many analysts follow insider buying trends because, after all, insiders 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. Insider buying is represented 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. 

Seven stocks with yields above 3% made the cut. They are listed in detail below.
