While the COVID-19 impact on Telus Corp. remains to be seen, the company had the good fortune of closing a $1.5-billion equity financing on Feb. 26 priced at $26 a share (split-adjusted). As the stock fell in March, we saw insiders buying. CFO Douglas French was one of them, picking up shares at $22.10. In our experience, CFOs generally tend to be a conservative lot, so when we see one buying, we take note. The most recent Telus insider buying took place March 31 when another officer bought at $21.75.
