Best buys by directors: Robotti’s $3.2 million bet on TDW

JDirectors of a company tend to have a unique inside view of the company. Thus, when directors make large purchases, investors are advised to take this into account. Presumably the only reason a director of a company would choose to take his hard-earned money and use it to buy stock on the open market is because he expects to make money – maybe he finds the stock very undervalued, or maybe he sees some interesting things happening within the company, or maybe both. So, in this series, we take a look at the biggest insider buys by CEOs in the last six months, one of which totaled $3.2 million by Robert Robotti, head of Tidewater Inc (ticker: TDW).
