A company's own top management tend to have the best inside view into the business, so when company officers make major buys, investors are wise to take notice. 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 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 the ''top brass'' over the trailing six month period, one of which was a total of $789.5K invested across 3 purchases by Thomas L. Carter Jr., President, CEO and Chairman at Black Stone Minerals LP (NYSE:BSM).

Carter Jr. bets big on BSM:
