Relative strength, dividend growth in TD stock

Relative stock price strength, dividend growth and discretionary insider buying is generally a positive combination. Over the past three months, Toronto-Dominion Bank shares have been outperforming the S&P/TSX composite while its dividend has increased 11.5 per cent since January. On Sept. 27, director John Bragg bought 4,600 shares in the public market at $73.85. Since the board sets distribution policy, that is encouraging. Also last month, a senior officer exercised 91,832 options but has only disposed of 26,000 shares in the market and 14,010 shares by way of gift.
