WOR Selling 8.0% Below CFO's Recent Buy Price

By Metals Channel Staff, Monday, April 6, 10:23 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 March 30, Worthington Industries, Inc.'s CFO, Joseph B. Hayek, invested $39,210.00 into 1,500 shares of WOR, for a cost per share of $26.14. 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.

In trading on Monday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Worthington Industries, Inc. (NYSE:WOR) and achieve a cost basis 8.0% cheaper than Hayek, with shares changing hands as low as $24.06 per share. Worthington Industries, Inc. shares are currently trading up about 6.6% on the day.
