Shaw family continues to buy shares in Shaw Communications


The Shaw family continues to hike its stake in Shaw Communications Inc. We highlighted Shaw family buying last May when board chair JR Shaw was snapping up non-voting Class B shares under $20. Although the share price is more expensive now, the elder Shaw has been buying again, along with CEO son Bradley. Between Jan. 16 and Jan. 18, they bought a total of 750,000 non-voting shares in the public market. The non-voting shares hit a five-year high of $24.20 in 2008.
