While Peter Lynch developed a simple rule to measure a stock’s relative valuation based on an earnings line at 15 times earnings, the Fidelity Magellan Fund manager also said that regarding insider trades, company directors may sell shares for several reasons, but buy shares only when they believe their stock is set to appreciate in value.

GuruFocus’ research adds that stocks with multiple insiders buying shares over the past few months signal potential gains in future months. As such, investors can find opportunities in stocks that have several different company directors and chief officers purchasing shares over the past two months.
