Retrocom Mid-Market REIT CEO goes bargain hunting Add to ...

For the second weekend in a row, we have come across insider buying in a high-yielding stock. Last week we wrote about Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp. Today, we turn to Retrocom Mid-Market REIT which currently pays a 3.75-per-unit monthly distribution.

In August, CEO Richard Michaeloff bought 10,000 units at $4.45, which is very close to the one-year high. Generally, it is a positive sign to see insiders buy as a stock moves to the upside. Such activity can signal that the market is still undervaluing a company despite recent gains.

Other insiders at Retrocom were buying this summer as well. In June, director Mauro Pambianchi bought 15,000 units at $3.80. Last month, 10-per-cent holder Peter Bull bought 56,000 units (not shown on chart). The largest insider at Retrocom based on reported SEDI holdings is Toronto retail real estate developer Mitchell Goldhar.
