The following is a list of high yield dividend stocks that have seen insider buying over the last few weeks.

To create this list, we started with a universe of stocks with dividend yields higher than 3.0%. We then narrowed down the universe to only focus on stocks that have seen insider buying since August.

To give perspective on investor sentiment, we'll also include data on short float and performance.

Note that most of these stocks are Limited Partnerships (these partnerships may require management to buy in from time to time).
