Bargain hunters are wise to pay careful attention to insider buying, because although there are many various reasons for an insider to sell a stock, presumably the only reason they would use their hard-earned cash to make a purchase, is that they expect to make money. Today we look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.

At Infinity Pharmaceuticals ( INFI ), a filing with the SEC revealed that on Wednesday, President Lawrence E. Bloch purchased 500,000 shares of INFI, for a cost of $1.81 each, for a total investment of $905,000. Infinity Pharmaceuticals is trading up about 9.9% on the day Thursday.
