Play Video: One Reason For Insiders to Buy


If the video does not load after a few moments, Upgrade to the Latest Flash Player.

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 September 5, DTE Energy Co's Director, Gary Torgow, invested $199,733.15 into 1,537 shares of DTE, for a cost per share of $129.95. 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 Friday, bargain hunters could buy shares of DTE Energy Co (NYSE:DTE) and achieve a cost basis 7.0% cheaper than Torgow, with shares changing hands as low as $120.83 per share. It should be noted that Torgow has collected $0.94/share in dividends since the time of their purchase, so they are currently down 6.3% on their purchase from a total return basis. DTE Energy Co shares are currently trading down about 0.6% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of DTE shares, versus its 200 day moving average:

Looking at the chart above, DTE's low point in its 52 week range is $107.22 per share, with $134.367 as the 52 week high point — that compares with a last trade of $120.97. By comparison, below is a table showing the prices at which DTE insider buying was recorded over the last six months:

Below is a long-term dividend history chart for DTE, which can be of good help in judging whether the most recent dividend with approx. 3.3% annualized yield is likely to continue.
