TransAlta Corp. has ridden a big Christmas bounce, rising about 70 per cent over the past three months and setting a 52-week high of $10.04 on March 28.

That same day, chief executive officer Dawn Farrell bought 50,000 shares at $10.03.

On March 25, TransAlta announced that Brookfield Renewable Partners and its partners plan to make a $750-million equity convertible investment in TransAlta.

However, not everyone is enthused with the deal. A group of investors have served notice to nominate five dissident candidates for election to board at the coming AGM.
