Pipeline services firm ShawCor Ltd. is a stock that has recently popped up on our screens. This month, an officer exercised 10,000 options at $16.90 and did not subsequently sell. The class A shares closed that day at $37.33 meaning that the executive left $200,000 in potential profits on the table. Director Heather Ann Shaw also bought 6,600 class A shares at an average price of $35.41. Although she subsequently gifted the same number of shares, we would put more emphasis on the purchases in this case.
