Will recent insider real estate stock buying pay off? K. Rai Sahi, chief executive officer of Morguard Corp. , bought 51,100 shares between $68.99 and $69.14. That investment may get a lift from the Bank of Canada which sees inflation dropping to 1 per cent next year – a curious forecast given that their highly touted core inflation gauge is rising. Mark Carney's outlook is probably convenient policy camouflage for keeping rates low in case the euro zone implodes. But, if Europe stabilizes, easy money could end up inflating Canadian real estate asset prices.
