Alberta-focused oil and natural gas producer Obsidian Energy Ltd. is up about 75 per cent year-to-date, setting a 52-week high of $2.45 on March 18. While it has since pulled back from that high, insiders are signalling this could be an opportunity for bullish oil patch contrarians. Insiders have been buying the dip, spending a combined $207,389 picking up shares in the public market in April. Trailing 12-months free cash flow is rising and going forward Obsidian has offered 2021 production guidance of midpoint 23,550 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
