While Baytex Energy Corp. is down about 80 per cent over five years, it has more than tripled in the past year. Baytex is an oil-based producer focused company that has been tilting toward light oil and condensates over the past five years. Meanwhile, insiders have bought near the stock’s 52-week high of $1.53. For example, on March 15, chief executive Edward LaFehr bought 16,891 shares at $1.48. Recent price, recent momentum, insider buying and relatively low valuations have made Baytex one of our highest ranked oil and gas names.
