The U.S. housing market is in the Fed’s crosshairs as it seeks to cool the economy. With that in mind, we visit Doman Building Materials Group Ltd. DBM-T with exposure to the U.S. forest-products market. Second-quarter earnings per share was 24 cents versus 64 cents a year earlier. The company attributed the setback to higher interest rates and a slowing housing market. Nevertheless, insiders are buying.
