Bag This Cheap Energy Stock Even Lower Than Senior V.P. & General Counsel Dornblaser Did
By Energy Stock Channel Staff, Tuesday, June 26, 10:46 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 June 21, Laredo Petroleum Holdings Inc's Senior V.P. & General Counsel, Kenneth E. Dornblaser, invested $39,963.00 into 2,100 shares of LPI, for a cost per share of $19.03. 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 Tuesday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Laredo Petroleum Holdings Inc (NYSE:LPI) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Dornblaser, with shares changing hands as low as $18.90 per share. Laredo Petroleum Holdings Inc shares are currently trading up about 0.7% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of LPI shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
Looking at the chart above, LPI's low point in its 52 week range is $17.25 per share, with $27.91 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $19.20. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which insider buying was recorded over the last six months:
