SmartCentres REIT SRU-UN-T (Friday’s close: $25.71) chairman and chief executive officer Mitchell Goldhar has been buying the dip. As markets were tumbling in the last week of September, he spent more than $1.1-million picking up 44,100 units. The purchases were between the prices of $25.00 and $25.58. In addition, on Sept. 30, executive vice-president of portfolio management and investments Rudy Gobin bought 5,000 units at $25.63. The insiders may be betting the REIT can weather Canadian economic headwinds with a portfolio that includes 114 shopping centres anchored by low-cost retailer Walmart as a tenant.
