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 14, THL Credit Incorporated's Director, John A. Sommers, invested $28,116.00 into 2,000 shares of TCRD, for a cost per share of $14.06. 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.
