Birchcliff is beating the tech giants

This weekend in the Globe and Mail we featured insider buying at natural gas producer Birchcliff Energy (BIR). Insiders were buying around the year-to-date stock market lows set on March 23rd. That turned out to be a great signal. Since that date, Birchcliff Energy stock is up over 130%.

March is shaping up to be a potential long-term turning point

Thanks to the law of small numbers kicking in, Birchcliff has left even Amazon (AMZN) in the dust which is up an impressive 27%. Below is the video summary of our original report on Birchcliff which we sent to members on April 7th.

Insider long-term bets paying off

There really is no better time to make use of INK reports than during the current bottoming process we are going through. Although these are challenging days, we also have tremendous opportunity to build our wealth in the times ahead.

Putting the attack on Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia in context for Monday

As has now been widely reported, more than half of Saudi Arabia's oil production supply was knocked out Saturday in an attack on Abqaiq oil facilities claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi rebel group. Saudi Arabia has indicated it will provide an update on their production situation by sometime Monday. 

While oil prices are likely to climb in the immediate aftermath, the more important question is what happens after the initial excitement passes. As Nick Colas from DataTrek Research explains in this August 22nd Real Vision interview, the oil price, not just the yield curve, is an important recession indicator. The interview provides insightful context for the week ahead given the attack.

Nick Colas on the importance of oil as an indicator

North American insiders signal that stocks face heavy resistance

 There appears to be a consensus among insiders that stocks are likely to face significant resistance at current levels. On Monday, we suggested that insiders were signalling that 1,160 would be a tough nut the crack for the INK Canadian Insider Index. We see the same dynamic playing out in US markets.

Stalling insider sentiment suggests stocks may have a hard time advancing

Like our Canadian-focused INK Indicator, our US Indicator is also levelling off. Such bottoming behaviour often takes place near significant resistance points. As a result, we expect 2,800 on the S&P 500 will be hard to crack in the short-term. If we are wrong, and stocks move higher in the days ahead, it would likely signal a return to a big-stock momentum-investing playbook. That said, we would not bet on that outcome.
