Snatch This Cheap Metals Stock Even Lower Than Director Miller DidBy Metals Channel Staff, Wednesday, May 19, 9:58 AM ET
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 May 14, Cleveland-Cliffs Inc 's Director, Janet L. Miller, invested $24,940.80 into 1,280 shares of CLF, for a cost per share of $19.48. 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.
