SRC Energy: A 39.5% Better Bargain Than When Spence Bought

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 November 6, SRC Energy Inc's EVP, Chief Development Officer, Nicholas Spence, invested $75,699.16 into 10,000 shares of SRCI, for a cost per share of $7.57. 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 Friday, bargain hunters could buy shares of SRC Energy Inc (Symbol: SRCI) and achieve a cost basis 39.5% cheaper than Spence, with shares changing hands as low as $4.58 per share. SRC Energy Inc shares are currently trading up about 3.3% on the day. The chart below shows the one year performance of SRCI shares, versus its 200 day moving average:
