Barrick’s Pascua-Lama gold processing plant in Argentina


Barrick Gold Corp. shares took a beating on Nov. 1 after the company reported disappointing earnings and further upward revisions to capital costs at its South American Pascua-Lama project. Following the news, we were watching to see what insiders would do. As it turns out, one has been buying. On Nov. 5, chief financial officer Ammar Al-Joundi bought 5,000 shares between $35.42 and $35.43. We also note in early August when the stock was down, CEO Jamie Sokalsky bought 50,000 shares at $32.59.
