Featured below are companies that have experienced recent insider trading activity in the public market through their direct and indirect ownerships, including accounts they have control or direction over.

The list features insider transaction activity; it does not convey total ownership information as an insider may hold numerous accounts.

Keep in mind, when looking at transaction activities by insiders, purchasing activity may reflect perceived value in a security. Selling activity may or may not be related to a stock’s valuation; perhaps an insider needs to raise money for personal reasons. An insider’s total holdings should be considered because a sale may, in context, be insignificant if this person has a large remaining position in the company. I tend to put great weight on insider transaction activity when I see multiple insiders trading a company’s shares or units.

Listed below are three securities that have had recent buying activity in the public market reported by insiders.

Allied Gold Corp. (AAUC-T)

Between Feb. 7-13, president and director Daniel Racine purchased a total of 203,000 shares at an average price per share of approximately $3.33, after which this particular account held 3,858,232 shares. The cost of these purchases totaled over $676,000.

Earlier this month, the share price tumbled with the stock briefly entering oversold territory after the company released its fourth quarter financial results and announced a 9 per cent cut to its workforce.

The share price has stabilized. The relative strength index (RSI) currently stands at 40. Generally, an RSI reading at or below 30 reflects an oversold condition.
