  • This is the first insider activity since May, when a company director bought 5,000 shares, paying just under $95,000. Another director bought 13,125 shares in March, for just under $500,000. Going further back, there has been a mix of insider buys and sells.

    Overall, company insiders own 0.3 percent of shares.

    The 9th-largest bank in the U.S., Truist has seen shares drop by over a third in the past year on concerns about the banking sector and rising interest rates.

    However, the bank has only seen earnings drop about 28 percent, and revenues are down 8 percent, while still maintaining a 24 percent profit margin.

  • Special: $1,300 into $45,000 in just 4 MONTHS?!
  • Action to take: At current prices, shares are valued at less than 8 times forward earnings. Plus, Truist is trading at about a 33 percent discount to its book value, so most downside appears to be well priced in.

    At current prices, the bank yields a hefty 7.5 percent, paying investors well for the perceived risk here.

    For traders, shares are back near their May lows and look ready to move higher. The January $30 calls, last going for about $1.20, could see mid-to-high double-digit gains on a rebound in the months ahead.
