Top Stocks With Insider Buying, Buybacks - TheStreet

Updated from 7:05 a.m. EDT

At Stockpickr.com, we keep track of the

Top 10 Insider Purchases and Buybacks

each week. Here's the perfect setup in my mind: insiders buying the stock, the company buying back its own shares and a super investor like

Warren Buffett

also making a bullish bet on the stock.

If I can get three out of three, I'm in heaven. If I can get two out of three, or even one out of three, I'm still pretty happy about the situation, particularly if the stock is cheap in other ways as well.

Each Thursday we update the Stockpickr

Top 10 Insider Purchases and Buybacks

portfolio, featuring stocks that in recent days have had big insider purchases or newly announced buybacks, as well as super investors accumulating shares.

This week's portfolio includes

Exelon

(EXC) - Get Report

,

Steel Dynamics

(STLD) - Get Report

and

Anadarko Petroleum

(APC) - Get Report

.
