The Past Week's Notable Insider Buys: More Biotech IPOs, Bumble, Fiserv And More



Insider buying can be an encouraging signal for potential investors, especially when markets face uncertainty.




Biotech stocks and secondary and initial public offerings were well represented this week.




A couple of chief executive officers also stepped up to the buy window last week.




Conventional wisdom says that insiders and 10% owners really only buy shares of a company for one reason — they believe the stock price will rise and they want to profit from it. So insider buying can be an encouraging signal for potential investors, particularly when there is uncertainty in the markets or the markets are at near all-time highs.

Here are some of the most noteworthy insider purchases that were reported in the past week.

Talis Biomedical Corp (NASDAQ:TLIS) saw its chief financial officer acquire almost 1,700 shares in its initial public offering, while other insiders bought more than 6.63 million shares altogether. At an offering price of $16.00 per share, the total for all these purchases came to over $106.22 million.

Decibel Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:DBTX) had a 10% owner and two directors buy shares of in its IPO. The more than 2.39 million shares acquired, at $18.00 apiece, totaled nearly $43.05 million. The stock has traded as high as $24.39 so far, but it closed most recently at $19.05 per share.

CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd acquired more than 488,300 Bumble Inc (NASDAQ:BMBL) shares at the IPO price of $43.00, while another director afterward bought over 6,500 shares at an average share price of $76.23. Altogether, those transactions added up to almost $21.50 million.
