Snag This Bargain Energy Stock Even Cheaper Than Director Herrington Did

There's an old saying on Wall Street about insider buying: there are many possible reasons to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy. Back on March 6, Clean Energy Fuels Corp's Director, John S. Herrington, invested $201,234.00 into 22,000 shares of CLNE, for a cost per share of $9.15. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money.
