In November, Democratic Republic of the Congo gold miner Banro stock had a double dose of bad news. On Nov. 14, Banro reported that its Twangiza mine experienced "lower than anticipated gold production to date". A short time later, investors learned of a rebel insurgence in the northeastern part of the country. Insiders had been selling earlier this fall. However, since Nov. 22, three insiders have spent just under $1-million buying 320,000 shares in the public market. The biggest buyer was CEO Simon Village who bought 200,000 shares.
