Bryan Hipsher, CFO of Dun & Bradstreet (DNB), recently bought 3,000 additional shares. The buy increased his holdings by nearly 0.5 percent, and came to a total purchase price of $63,000.
Hipsher was also a buyer of company shares back in February with a 6,000 share pickup. Overall, company insiders have been entirely buyers in the past three years, with zero sales. Company insiders also own over 22 percent of all shares.
The company, which provides financial data, analytics, and ratings, has seen shares slide 14 percent over the past year.
While revenue growth is up, the company is currently unprofitable. Shares are currently trading at 21 times forward earnings.
Action to take: The company has a series of strong brands, and may be able to shake off its recent spate of unprofitability. The company has seen its valuation drop on a number of metrics in recent quarters including price to sales and price to book.
Shares have started moving up in recent sessions. Traders may like the October $22.50 call option. It last went for about $1.55. Given the company’s longer-term downtrend however, any profits on the long side will likely be small, even with considerable insider ownership and buys being made by insiders right now.
