Land This Bargain Energy Stock With 4.6% Yield Even Cheaper Than Director Rigby Did

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 28, Dominion Energy Inc 's Director, Joseph M. Rigby, invested $199,998.00 into 2,679 shares of D, for a cost per share of $74.65. 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 Dominion Energy Inc (Symbol: D) and achieve a cost basis 3.3% cheaper than Rigby, with shares changing hands as low as $72.22 per share.
