Strategic Oil & Gas Ltd. stock tumbled in late May following the release of first-quarter results. As the share price has fallen, five insiders at the Alberta- and B.C.-focused producer have been picking up stock. This multiple buying, which includes the CEO and CFO, sends a strong insider contrarian signal. Such signals are of interest to long-term investors with a high degree of risk tolerance. The biggest purchaser over the past 30 days was board chair Thomas Claugus who spent $1,739,129 acquiring 1,978,700 shares.
