Generally, when a single insider buys stock, it is usually not a big deal. However, when several insiders are buying, like in the case of Southern Cross Media Group Limited (ASX:SXL), it sends a favourable message to the company's shareholders.

Although we don't think shareholders should simply follow insider transactions, we do think it is perfectly logical to keep tabs on what insiders are doing.
