From Investopedia:

"In 1939, with Hitler’s Germany ravaging Europe, John Templeton bought $100 of every stock trading below $1 on the New York and American stock exchanges. Templeton’s trade got him a junk pile of some 104 companies, 34 of which were bankrupt, for a total investment of roughly $10,400. Four years later he sold these stocks for more than $40,000!"

If you ran that screen today it returns about 300 stocks from a list of 2500.

If you then sort the stocks by number of insider buys it returns the following symbols:

Adcare Health (ADK)

Cano Petroleum (CFW)

Dreams Inc (DRJ)

Endeavour Intl (END)

Entercom Communications (ETM)

Frederick's of Hollywood (FOH)

Global Logistics (GLA)

General Moly (GMO)

GlobalSPACE (GSB)

Cytomedix (GTF)

Gray Television (GTN)

HOOPER HOLMES (HH)

Interstate Hotels & Resorts (IHR)

NTN Buzztime (NTN)

OMNOVA Solutions, (OMN)

Opko Health (OPK)

Castle Brands (ROX)

Roberts Realty Investors (RPI)

Tucows (TCX)

Xfone (XFN)

Some truly nauseating charts in there! Strong caution - a lot of these funds are teeny microcaps with little volume. . .values ranging from $150 million to $5 million.
