Insiders have been buying Blackmores and these ASX shares this week

Once a week I like to look at which shares have experienced meaningful insider buying.

This is because insider buying is often regarded as a bullish indicator as few people know a company and its intrinsic value better than its own directors.

Three shares which have reported meaningful insider buying this week are listed below:

Adairs Ltd (ASX: ADH)

According to a change of director’s interest notice, the independent chairman and non-executive director of this home furnishings retailer has been buying shares on market this month. Michael Butler picked up 35,866 shares on market for a total consideration of $56,956.06. This equates to an average of $1.59 per share and lifts Mr Butler’s holding in the company to a sizeable 449,724 shares. Adairs’ shares have come under pressure this year due to the housing market downturn, but this director appears confident in its prospects. I think Adairs’ shares are great value at the current level.

Bailador Technology Investments Ltd (ASX: BTI)

A change of director’s interest notice reveals that the co-founder and managing partner of this technology-focused investment company has been buying more shares on-market. According to the notice, Paul Wilson picked up a further 100,000 ordinary shares on April 15 for a total consideration of $81,408. This equates to a price of 81.4 cents per share. This latest purchase brought Mr Wilson’s stake in the company up to just under 3.9 million shares. The director may believe that Bailador Technology Investments’ shares are dirt cheap at this level considering last week the company revealed that its NTA per share post-tax was $1.11.

Blackmores Limited (ASX: BKL)

According to a change of director’s interest notice, newly appointed non-executive director Christine Holman has taken advantage of the decline in this health supplements company’s share price this week to pick up her first shares. On Wednesday Holman bought 1,500 Blackmores shares on market for a total consideration of $133,783.11. This works out to be an average price of approximately $89.19 per share.

I intend to wait for Blackmores performance to improve before investing. Until then, this hot small cap stock could be a great alternative for investors.

One ASX Stock For An Estimated $US22 Billion Marijuana Market

A little-known ASX company just unlocked what some experts think could be the key to profiting off the coming marijuana boom.

And make no mistake – it is coming. To the tune of an estimated $US22 billion.

Cannabis legalisation is sweeping over North America, and full legalisation arrived in Canada in October 2018.

Here's the best part: we think there's one ASX stock that's uniquely positioned to profit immensely from this explosive new industry... taking savvy investors along for what could be one heck of a ride.

AND, this is the first time The Motley Fool Australia has EVER put a BUY recommendation on a marijuana stock.
