Falling lumber prices and broad market weakness have been helping to drag down Interfor Corp. IFP-T stock this month. For example, the stock fell 9.9 per cent on May 18. That left the shares trading at a trailing 12-months price-to-earnings of less than 3. Some insiders are seeing the market storm as a buying opportunity. On May 16, chief financial officer Richard Pozzebon bought 16,180 shares at prices ranging from $33.00 to $33.51. Later on May 18, senior vice-president Eric Larouche bought 2,000 shares at $32.10.
