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 securities that have had recent buying activity in the public market reported by insiders.

Canadian Western Bank (CWB-T)

Last month, we reported that Mr. Davloor bought a total of 20,000 units at an average price per unit of roughly $13.39 on May 9 and 10. The cost of these purchases totaled over $267,000.

The REIT pays its unitholders a monthly distribution of 6.67 cents per unit, or 80 cents yearly, equating to a current annualized yield of approximately 6.3 per cent.

Units of this REIT are approaching oversold territory. The relative strength index is at 32. Generally, an RSI reading at or below 30 reflects an oversold condition.
