Play Video: One Reason For Insiders to Buy

The directors of a company tend to have a unique inside view into the business, so when directors make major buys, investors are wise to take notice. Presumably the only reason a director of a company would choose to take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock in the open market, is that they expect to make money maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both. So in this series we look at the largest insider buys by company directors over the trailing six month period, one of which was a total of $169.4K invested across 3 purchases by Christopher Crupi, CEO at Paramount Gold & Silver Corp (AMEX:PZG).

Crupi bets big on PZG:

Purchased Insider Title Shares Price/Share Value
03/30/2012 Christopher Crupi CEO 50,000 $2.23 $111,518.20
04/20/2012 Christopher Crupi CEO 15,000 $2.31 $34,650.00
06/28/2012 Christopher Crupi CEO 10,000 $2.32 $23,200.00

Crupi's average cost works out to $2.26/share. Shares of Paramount Gold & Silver Corp were changing hands at $2.67 at last check, trading off about 1.1% on Friday. The chart below shows the one year performance of PZG shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, PZG's low point in its 52 week range is $1.95 per share, with $3.06 as the 52 week high point that compares with a last trade of $2.67.

According to the ETF Finder at ETF Channel, PZG makes up 4.18% of the Gold Explorers ETF (AMEX:GLDX) which is trading lower by about 0.4% on the day Friday.
