Tuesday 11/5 Insider Buying Report: OFIX, AGO

Bargain hunters are wise to pay careful attention to insider buying, because although there are many various reasons for an insider to sell a stock, presumably the only reason they would use their hard-earned cash to make a purchase, is that they expect to make money.

At Orthofix Medical (OFIX), a filing with the SEC revealed that on Thursday, Director Ronald A. Matricaria purchased 20,000 shares of OFIX, for a cost of $42.27 each, for a total investment of $845,305.

And on Friday, Chief Investment Officer Andrew T. Feldstein bought $546,835 worth of Assured Guaranty (AGO), buying 11,565 shares at a cost of $47.28 a piece.
