5 Rallies That Insiders Think Will Continue

Conventional wisdom would have you believe that once a stock has begun to rally, it's too late for you to get in on the action. While this is often the case, there are exceptions to every rule.

Sometimes, it's okay to be a little tardy to the party -- at least, if insider trading patterns are any indication. A number of companies continue to see insider buying, despite recent gains -- which means you may want to put them on your radar.

After all, management knows more about a company's operations than anyone else -- so there may be good news coming down the pipeline that hasn't yet been priced into the stock. The fact that they're still buying is a pretty solid indication that the rally isn't expected to lose momentum anytime soon -- so maybe you haven't missed the boat after all...

Here's a list of companies showing upside momentum and seeing insider buying. Is now the right time for a last-minute investment? Use this interactive report to start analyzing these companies and decide for yourself.
