Contrarian investors look to invest against the trend. When a stock price plunges on bad news and investors rush to sell, contrarians see an opportunity to exploit market's overreaction. When insiders in such stocks are buying, there is a good chance that the stock price is due for a recovery.

Report Time Period: 

Down by Half Purchases

Largest purchases at companies trading at 50% or less of their 52-week high. When the market over-reacts to a negative event and causes a significant drop in the stock price, insiders may buy on the dip to reap a profit on the rebound.
