Looking back at 2010, we turn to Canfor Corp. director Jim Pattison, whose public-market purchases have totalled just over seven million shares throughout the past year. That amount makes him the insider with the most public-market buying in Canada for the year in terms of direct or indirect holdings. His most recent trades took place between Dec. 17 and Dec. 23 when he bought 516,400 shares in the public market.
This buying maintains the stock near the top of our insider radar screens as we start 2011.
