JupiterMedia is not a cheap stock on PE and PEG, but you have to take notice of a stock when insiders keep buying it, especially AFTER it has made a major move from under $1.00 to over $20 before correcting (we hope) to less than $4. Perhaps the very low price/sales and price/book ratio is what has insiders buying?
