CONE Selling Below CEO's Recent Buy Price

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 February 27, CyrusOne Inc's CEO, Gary J. Wojtaszek, invested $199,435.60 into 4,000 shares of CONE, for a cost per share of $49.86. 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 CyrusOne Inc (Symbol: CONE) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Wojtaszek, with shares changing hands as low as $49.71 per share. CyrusOne Inc shares are currently trading down about 1.3% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of CONE shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
