  • This follows off a few smaller buys from company officers since the start of the year. Filler was a heavy buyer in 2020 as well. Overall, insiders are steady buyers, and also own over 27 percent of shares.

    Shares of the small-cap bank are still down about 12 percent over the past year. In that same timeframe, the bank grew its earnings and revenues by high single-digit levels. More importantly, the bank has a fantastic 35 percent profit margin.

    While many traders are concerned about bank profits with interest rates so low, there’s currently a steep yield curve. That means that banks can borrow at zero percent and make a steeply positive return on longer-dated loans. It bodes well for bank shares, even with any short-term fears.

    Action to take: Shares are an attractive buy here, even though the current dividend yield on shares is just under 1 percent. The continual insider buying and relative valuation should lead to solid returns in shares in the coming months.
