Martin Midstream Partners Named Top Dividend Stock With Insider Buying and 7.31% Yield (MMLP)

Apr 3 2014, 11:27am CDT | by

In this series, we look through the most recent Dividend Channel ”DividendRank” report, and then we cherry pick only those companies that have experienced insider buying within the past six months. The officers and directors of a company tend to have a unique insider’s view of the business, and presumably the only reason an insider would choose to take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock in the open market, is that they expect to make money — maybe they find the stock very undervalued, or maybe they see exciting progress within the company, or maybe both. So when stocks turn up that see insider buying, and are also top ranked, investors are wise to take notice. One such company is Martin Midstream Partners LP (NASD: MMLP), which saw buying by CEO Ruben S. Martin.
