Investors seem impressed with the growth of transportation and industrial equipment finance company Element Financial Corp. The stock is up about 40 per cent over the past three months. So, when we came across multimillion dollar buy filings at the firm recently, we took note. On June 28, five insiders including the CEO spent $19-million buying shares in the public market. Insiders paid $12 on average for 1,583,000 shares. It is usually a positive signal when multiple insiders buy significant amounts of shares after a stock has been rallying strongly.
