Several directors and officers at AOL ( AOL ) have been both buying and selling shares over the past month, but the buyers more than triple the sellers in terms of dollars spent. Insiders have bought 149,000 shares of the company's common stock between May 7 and Jun 6, while selling 35,000. The purchased shares combine to more than $5 million, while the sold ones total just over $1.3 million.

IK-> The technicals for AOL ($36.70 up $0.17) are bearish with a sideways trend. Recent support has been around $35.50 and recent resistance has been near $39.00. Standard & Poor's does not follow the stock. Look at the July 30/33 bull-put spread for a 20-cent credit. That's a 7.1% return and the stock has to fall 10.1% to cause a problem.
