Why This Company Represents Interesting Value on Insider Activity

The energy sector is one which continues to be broadly out of favour with investor right now. As such, investors interested in pockets of value may look to signals such as insider buying as reasons to own some smaller to mid-cap companies in this space. One such company that has come on my radar of late is Crew Energy (TSX:CR).

In January, insiders in Crew purchased more than $100,000 worth of stock at an average price of $0.65. Today, shares of Crew are trading at nearly $1 per share as value investors seemingly like the growth story of Crew.

The company expects a meaningful production increase this year. Many investors betting on a bull market in commodities may be looking to pick up shares in companies like Crew with strong medium-term growth profiles and undervalued shares. I think these insider purchases do make the investment thesis for Crew much more intriguing for such investors right now.

As always, please remember to consult with a certified financial advisor into your own homework before making investing decisions. Insider buying and selling activity is not necessarily indicative of the future performance of a given company’s stock price, and insiders regularly buy or sell positions in companies they own or manage for reasons other than expectations of future stock price performance. Analyzing insider transactions in a given stock is one tool of many to gain pertinent information to assist in investment decision making.

Invest wisely, my friends.
