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 dollars to make a purchase, is that they expect to make money. Today we look at two noteworthy recent insider buys.

On Tuesday, ViewRay's CEO, Scott William Drake, made a $500,048 purchase of VRAY, buying 131,260 shares at a cost of $3.81 each. ViewRay Inc is trading down about 2.2% on the day Thursday.
