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 two stocks that have had recent insider buying activity.

Cenovus Energy Inc. (CVE-T)

On April 26, Keith MacPhail, who sits on the board of directors, bought 14,000 shares at a cost per share of $13.46, raising his portfolio’s holdings to 172,000 shares.

Rogers Communications Inc. (RCI.B-T)

In April, the share price dipped below the $70-level after the company reported disappointing first-quarter earnings results.

On April 26, chair of the board Edward Rogers invested over $20-million in shares of the company. He purchased 297,000 shares at a cost per share of $67.6028 for an account in which he has indirect ownership (E.S. Rogers Enterprises Inc.), increasing the account’s holdings to 895,000 shares.
