The top two spots continue to be held by Paramount Resources (POU) and High Liner Foods (HLF).

Introducing the INK No Go List

Introducing the INK No Go List

At INK Research, our mission is to help you make better investment decisions by tracking the legally reported buying and selling of public company executives, a group also known as corporate insiders. To help point investors in the right direction with their investments, we combine insider activity with valuations and momentum factors to identify which stocks might make the best investment destinations. 

The foundation of our process looks at insider commitment. We rank every stock on a standard INK measure of insider commitment which takes into account the number of common shares company officers and directors hold on a beneficial basis as reported via SEDI or the SEC along with recent buying or selling of company shares. It is a pretty straight forward concept. The more stock that key insiders own and are buying, the greater the insider commitment towards the firm.

You can find our insider commitment rankings in the INK Edge outlook summary for a stock on the INK and Canadian Insider websites.

As critical as holdings and buying are in assessing insider commitment, there is at least one more important consideration, and that is commitment to disclosure. In INK's view, insiders who seek to legally delay or intentionally fail to disclose significant transactions within normal filing requirements are seeking to gain an advantage which can tilt the playing field in favour of the insiders. INK believes strongly in pro-market principles, and that means a level playing field for all investors.

A Bob Hoye bitcoin buy signal

How many bulls does it take to change a light bulb? None, says Bob Hoye from ChartsandMarkets.com, "Because light bulbs never burn out and neither do bull markets".  In his May 10th broadcast, the market historian suggests we are seeing signs of a top in the market, including a recent headline, "The US stock market can't stop, won't stop its endless rally".

China stimulus vs Fed tightening

In my May 9th interview with Jim Goddard from HoweStreet.com, I talk about recent developments in the Canadian housing market including short-selling at mortgage lenders such as Equitable Group (EQB). The stock is one of the top 10 most shorted stocks. EQB released earnings Thursday night, and while Q1 adjusted EPS was $2.72, two cents short of analysts expectations, the company boosted its dividend by 3%. In the second segment, we get into Grayscale's recent promotion that encourages people to drop gold in favour of bitcoin, suggesting that the debate can be a win-win outcome for both camps.
