Insider Buying is Anemic- Insider Buying is Anemic- BUT WE STILL FIND SOMETHING TO BUY $APD,$CCI,$URI -try these names on for size Week Ending 7-26-19

Two large-cap buyers have excellent track records. Air Products and Chemicals (APD) CEO Ghasemi is batting 8 out of 9 on winning trades showing exemplary timing.  It’s also very bullish when the CEO buys the stock at the top of the price range as was his $4.54 M buy at $227.16

Another interesting buy was Chairman Martin Landis purchase of cell phone tower REIT Crown Castle International (CCI) $2,07 M at $127.33.  It’s hard to get excited by the meager dividend yield of 3.45% combined with the uncertainty of the Sprint Tmobile merger but Landis has a winning track record, 4 out of 4 according to the Washington Service.  See the attached spreadsheet for more details.
