As the saying goes, there are many possible reasons for an insider to sell a stock, but only one reason to buy -- they expect to make money. So let's look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.

On Friday, Air Products & Chemicals ( APD )'s CEO, Seifi Ghasemi, made a $3.32M buy of APD, purchasing 25,000 shares at a cost of $132.84 a piece. Ghasemi was up about 1.4% on the buy at the high point of today's trading session, with APD trading as high as $134.74 at last check today.

Before this latest buy, Ghasemi made one other purchase in the past twelve months, buying $1.62M shares at a cost of $108.09 a piece.


And at Tootsie Roll Industries ( TR ), there was insider buying on Thursday, by Director Brent Lana Jane Lewis who bought 15,000 shares for a cost of $26.91 each, for a total investment of $403,620.
