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 September 6, Broadcom Inc's Director, Check Kian Low, invested $9,592,281.60 into 11,000 shares of AVGO, for a cost per share of $872.03. 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 Broadcom Inc (Symbol: AVGO) and achieve a cost basis even cheaper than Low, with shares changing hands as low as $865.96 per share.
