REITs are one of the few areas with bullish Canadian insider sentiment right now. Today we look at Northern Property REIT. Three-quarters of the portfolio is multi-family with the rest split between commercial and hotel. In December, CEO B. James Britton bought 13,000 units between $26.30 and $27.48. The purchase was particularly notable in light of the company's subsequent announcement that Mr. Britton plans to retire in May. Northern Property REIT has above-median beneficial ownership by officers and directors compared to other mid-cap Financials stocks.
