Below is the list of insider buys from yesterday and this morning sorted by level of short selling. The idea here is simple. Find stocks where insiders are buying and the shorts are “dumb short sellers”. Insider buying continues at Good Rx (GDRX) and we note shorts are feeling pain in Hawthorne Bancshares (HBWK). Also, we have looked at American Assets Trust (AAT) in the past and short may need to cover. As such we like this as a long idea. Updated 5/27.
