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 Valley National Bancorp ( VLY ), a filing with the SEC revealed that on Monday, Director Peter J. Baum bought 3,433 shares of VLY, at a cost of $12.70 each, for a total investment of $43,613.
