Featured below are companies that have experienced recent insider trading activity in the public market through their direct and indirect ownerships, including accounts they have control or direction over.

The list features insider transaction activity; it does not convey total ownership information as an insider may hold numerous accounts.

Keep in mind, when looking at transaction activities by insiders, purchasing activity may reflect perceived value in a security. Selling activity may or may not be related to a stock’s valuation; perhaps an insider needs to raise money for personal reasons. An insider’s total holdings should be considered because a sale may, in context, be insignificant if this person has a large remaining position in the company. I tend to put great weight on insider transaction activity when I see multiple insiders trading a company’s shares or units.

Listed below are two stocks that have had recent buying activity in the public market reported by insiders.

Topaz Energy Corp. (TPZ-T)

On Dec. 28, director Mike Rose, who sits on the board of directors, invested roughly $210,000 in shares of Topaz. He bought 10,000 shares at a cost per share of $20.9984, lifting this particular account’s holdings to 443,470 shares.

Toumaline Oil Corp. (TOU-T)

Between Dec. 28 and Jan. 3, chairman, president, chief executive officer and founder Mike Rose acquired a total of 15,000 shares at an average price per share of approximately $67.32, increasing this specific account’s position to 8,634,974 shares. The cost of these purchases totaled more than $1-million.

Over the past month, the share price has declined 20 per cent.

The relative strength index (RSI) is below 25. Generally, an RSI reading at or below 30 reflects an oversold condition.
