Do you value the perspective of company insiders? We ran a screen with this idea in mind.

We began by compiling a universe of stocks of companies that offer a high yield dividend, between 3-7%. We capped our screen at 7% for sustainability.

We then screened these names for those with the confidence of their company insiders, such as members of the board and upper management, with significant net insider purchases over the last six months representing at least 2% of share float. Since most companies only have a handful of company insiders, net insider purchases representing 2% of share float is a big show of confidence in their employer's prospects.
