This evening we got alerted by our system that the Executive Chairman, President & CEO of Intrepid Potash, Inc. (ticker: IPI) bought 50,000 shares of his own company. Jornayvaz Robert P III paid an average of $2.30 per share. Earlier this year, on the 21st of March he also bought IPI shares and since then the stock price has nearly doubled. This guy certainly seems to time his insider purchases right.
We think that this is a very interesting insider buy and we picked up shares immediately. It seems that there is some serious resistance sitting at the $2.50 mark, but this insider buy could potentially push the stock through this multiple top. We are hoping to make a quick 8% profit here and we’ve set our closing order at just below $2.50. If it manages to push through the resistance at $2.50 it has large potential to go a lot of higher because there are currently a lot of people shorting this stock who will need to close their positions then.
