Top Buys by Top Brass: Chief Executive Officer & Pres Puishys's $496.5K Bet on APOG

A company's own top management tend to have the best inside view into the business, so when company officers make major buys, investors are wise to take notice. 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 - maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both.

Puishys, Chief Executive Officer & Pres at Apogee Enterprises Inc (Symbol: APOG).
