I disagree with you AA. First, insiders own about 24% of the company already, it is not like they don't have something at stake. Second, even 500 shares is 50K. Not everyone has that lying around to buy a stock you already own $1mm plus of.. These are not Wall Streeters who are gouging their shareholders with huge bonuses on phantom profits.
Also, if they are buying in stock [I don't think they are], essentially insiders are putting up 24% of the money.
I think they would like to buy a small product line, but prices have been silly for everything for years. Having cash will be a great thing if a good deal comes along.
Atrion stock never gets expensive, but it does get cheap. Makes it easier just to be a long term holder.
Though I still wish they would split the stock!! LOL
