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.

On Wednesday, Medicines ( MDCO )'s Director, Alexander J. Denner, made a $6.18M purchase of MDCO, buying 248,100 shares at a cost of $24.91 a piece.
