Most often we see insiders cashing in and selling their shares. However, the stocks below have seen recent and significant insider buying. This can be a great sign that a stock is a real value or that it is probably going higher in the near future. When you see insider buying at depressed prices, it often means the shares are oversold and offer great long-term value. It's also good when you see insiders buying when the stock has been trending higher as it can mean there is more room to run. I have provided links for each stock, which verifies the insider buying filed with the SEC below. Here are the stocks:

United Health Group, Inc. (NYSE:UNH) is trading around $51.63. United Health provides health care services and is based in Minnesota. These shares have traded in a range between $29.94 to $53.50 in the last 52 weeks. The 50-day moving average is $50.47 and the 200-day moving average is $42.97. UNH is estimated to earn $4.34 per share this year and $4.78 for next year. See the insider buying here.

What United Health insiders and other investors might be seeing: A director recently bought about 3,000 shares for a total transaction value of about $156,000. Since the stock is trading above the 50 and 200 day moving average, I would wait for pullbacks before considering an investment here.
Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS) is trading around $40.42. Hasbro is a leading toy and game maker and is based in Rhode Island. The 50-day moving average is $44.11 and the 200-day moving average is $45.55. These shares have traded in a range between $38.77 to $50.17 in the last 52 weeks. HAS is estimated to earn about $3.04 per share in 2011, and $3.51 in 2012. See the insider buying here.
What HAS insiders and other investors might be seeing: This stock has dropped recently and that appears to be attracting some bargain hunting by the insiders. The CFO and CEO recently bought 5,000 shares and an officer recently bought 4,000 shares.
Audiovox Corporation (NASDAQ:VOXX) is trading around $7.48. Audiovox is a maker of consumer electronics and is based in New York. These shares have traded in a range between $6.17 to $8.98 in the last 52 weeks. The 50-day moving average is $7.43 and the 200-day moving average is $7.50. VOXX is estimated to earn about 74 cents per share in 2011 and 97 cents in 2012. See the repeated insider buying here.
What Audiovox insiders and other investors might be seeing: The CFO recently bought 10,000 shares for a total transaction value of about $75,000. Insider have been selling prior to this transaction, so I would wait to see if more insiders buy soon.
Texas Industries, Inc. (NYSE:TXI) is trading around $39.94. Texas Industries is a leading maker of construction materials and it is based in Texas. These shares have traded in a range between $27.28 to $47.42 in the last 52 weeks. The 50-day moving average is $39.55 and the 200-day moving average is $39.94. TXI is estimated to lose about $1.61 per share in 2011 and 74 cents in 2012. See the insider buying here.
What Texas Industries insiders and other investors might be seeing: In this case the "insider" buying is from Longleaf Partners, which is a well know investment fund. It has been buying repeatedly and has purchased millions of dollars in stock this year.
Tuesday Morning (NASDAQ:TUES) is trading at $4.30. Tuesday Morning is based in Texas, and is a leading retailer of discounted goods. These shares have a 52-week range of $3.53 and $5.93. The 50-day moving average is $4.54 and the 200-day moving average is $4.88, so these shares are trading way below support levels. See the insider buying here.
What Tuesday Morning insiders and other investors might be seeing: This stock fell sharply after the company announced disappointing earnings. The CFO and COO recently bought 10,000 shares each, which appears to be bargain hunting after the big price drop.
