Insiders Were Right: ABCB Makes New 52-Week High

In trading on Wednesday, shares of Ameris Bancorp (ABCB) touched a new 52-week high of $20.58/share. That's a 93.42% rise, or $9.94 per share from the 52-week low of $10.64 set back on 11/26/2012. That means at today's intraday high, any investor who purchased ABCB stock any time over the past 52 weeks has an unrealized gain, including company insiders.

Over the past six months, insiders have been scooping up shares, and those bets are now paying off handsomely. As summarized by the table below, ABCB has seen 3 different instances of insiders buying over the trailing six month period.
