Shares of Husky Energy Inc. have lagged the S&P/TSX composite over the past 5 years. However, times may be changing. The stock has out-paced the index over the past year by about 10 per cent. Importantly, during the past 12 months, senior managers have spent $900,000 buying stock in the market. In addition, Husky's biggest shareholder is Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing. In terms of oil sands development, Mr. Li's stake is probably just the type of foreign private sector involvement that Ottawa prefers over state owned enterprises.
