New Gold Inc. hits our screens this week as having an upbeat contrarian insider signal. Contrarian signals tend to be of interest to longer-term value-oriented investors with time horizons of up to five years. Earlier this month, the company reported first-quarter profits of 7 cents per share and reiterated its 2012 guidance that gold production would be between 405,000 to 445,000 ounces. A few days later officer Brett Gagnon bought 14,450 shares. In early April, insiders were also buying. The biggest purchase was by CEO Robert Gallagher who bought 250,000 shares.
