Last week, we wrote about insider buying at an income trust that intends to convert to a corporation. However, not all income trusts are planning to make the switch. Chemtrade Logistics Income Fund is one that seems to prefer the status quo.

The fund currently pays a 10-cent per unit monthly distribution.
Insider sentiment trends are positive at the chemical maker and distributor. Recently, chief financial officer Rohit Bhardwaj bought 10,000 units in the public market at $13.13. Over the past year, insider ownership at the firm has been edging up, thanks primarily to employee purchase plans. Meanwhile, there have been no insider sales.
