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 is a stock that has had recent buying activity in the public market reported by an insider.

Tourmaline Oil Corp. (TOU-T)

Between June 6-13, president, chief executive officer and chairman Mike Rose invested over $546,000 in shares of Tourmaline.

After these transactions, one account held 8,774,973 shares, while the other account held 29,755 shares.

Tourmaline is the largest natural gas producer in Canada. Management forecasts 2022 production to be between 500,000 and 510,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
