The oil patch is back with a vengeance. In our September Top 40 Stock Report, half the list is from the energy sector. Throughout the past few months in INK reports, we have encouraged investors to consider the value proposition of Canadian energy stocks. For example, in the spring, here we highlighted insider buying at Baytex Energy Corp. as the stock rallied. As it consolidated this summer, insiders continued to buy. The most recent buyer was chief executive officer Edward LaFehr, who picked up 15,000 shares at $2.28 on Sept. 9.
