Back on August 13, Coca-Cola Co ‘s Chief People Officer & SVP, Lisa Chang, invested $26,618.10 into 500 shares of KO, for a cost per share of $53.24. Bargain hunters tend to pay particular attention to insider buys like this one, because presumably the only reason an insider would take their hard-earned cash and use it to buy stock of their company in the open market, is that they expect to make money.
