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 13, Genesis Energy L.P.'s Chief Financial Officer, Robert V. Deere, invested $1,031,560.00 into 34,000 shares of GEL, for a cost per share of $30.34. 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 Monday, bargain hunters could buy shares of Genesis Energy L.P. (Symbol: GEL) and achieve a cost basis 2.0% cheaper than Deere, with shares changing hands as low as $29.74 per share. Genesis Energy L.P. shares are currently trading up about 0.5% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of GEL shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
