Element Financial insiders loaded up on stock in 2013

Element Financial was the TSX stock with most officer or director reported public-market beneficial holding buys during 2013. We highlighted some of the early buying in mid-July. After the report, the stock advanced more than 15 per cent hitting an all-time high of $14.82 in early December before cooling off on news of a shelf prospectus filing. Looking forward, the stock has a mixed outlook according to our INK Edge rankings. Relatively expensive valuations are offsetting continued positive insider and growth-related signals.
