When I am analyzing a company to see if it could potentially be a good long-term investment, I always look at the insider buying. It goes without saying that they probably have a much better idea of what is happening in the company than most analysts. They certainly know more about it than I do. I especially like to see what they are doing after their company stock has fallen dramatically.I am not implying that there is anything illicit or illegal going on. When an insider wants to buy or sell their company's stock they can as long as they follow very strict procedures. They have to file their intent to buy or sell with the SEC, and they are subject to "blackout periods". These are times in which they cannot trade the stock. For example, insiders may be prohibited from buying or selling the stock in the thirty days before or after the earnings release is due to be reported.There are many reasons why an officer or a director of a company may decide to sell their stock. They could need to raise money for things such as tuitions, mortgages, weddings or divorce settlements.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsBut they only buy it for one reason: They believe that the stock is undervalued and eventually it will trade at a higher price where they can make a profit. * 10 Great Stocks to Buy on Dips These five stocks came up on my radar screen as potential buys due to the significant insider buying that has recently occurred.

It could have something to do with the fact that last year the company lost $7.1 per share … a loss of $1.75 billion. In 2017, net income was $330 million, or $1.35 per share.It seems that these two insiders believe that the selloff is overdone and that the stock is an attractive investment at these levels. GrubHub (GRUB) Click to EnlargeGrubHub (NYSE:GRUB) operates as an online and mobile food-ordering company, which connects diners with local takeout restaurants. Personally, every time I have ever tried to use the service they are late, so I've stopped using them.The stock price has fallen 50% since September. This could have something to do with their reduced earnings. In 2017 they earned $1.15 per share but in 2018 that fell to $.85. The current short interest, or percentage of daily volume that is held by short-sellers, is 17%. This is pretty high, but consider that all of these short sellers eventually need to buy the stock back. * 7 Tips for Financial Planners to Gain a Competitive Edge Maybe this is why the Chief Executive Officer invested $1 million of his own money when he paid $64.87 for 15,416 shares on April 30.
