Diamond pioneer Gren Thomas takes a shine to gold, tin plays

For David Grenville (Gren) Thomas, the big score was the discovery of Diavik by his Aber Resources more than 20 years ago.

Thomas and his partners headed north and got to work in the early days of the staking rush following Chuck Fipke’s 1991 discovery of diamonds in the Northwest Territories. It took a few years, but in 1994 and 1995, Aber discovered the kimberlite pipes that became Diavik, Canada’s second diamond mine. Diavik, still producing, is a joint venture between 60% owner Rio Tinto (RIO*US) and Aber successor Dominion Diamond (DDC) (40%).

INK Research Announces Semi-Annual Review of the INK Canadian Insider Index

INK Research (INK) has announced changes to the INK Canadian Insider Index as a result of the rules-based semi-annual review. These changes will be effective at the close on Friday, November 20, 2015. In all, twenty stocks were added and dropped. Read the full list here: https://index.inkresearch.com/announce.php?id=5.

The INK Canadian Insider Index includes the top ranked value and momentum stocks on the TSX preferred by insiders. The 50-stock Index constituents are determined using INK Research's proprietary INK Edge ® V.I.P. screening criteria of valuations, insider commitment and price momentum. The Index historically has a mid-cap focus and is rebalanced to equal weight in May and November each year. Additions and deletions to the Index are also made at that time.

Ex-politician rings the Bell for Dominion Diamond

Brendan Bell, the acting CEO of Dominion Diamond (DDC), took an unconventional route to the C-suite. Neither a geologist nor an investment banker, Bell was a cabinet minister in the Northwest Territories before joining the northern diamond producer in July 2013. As the company's stock has plummeted recently, Bell has been buying. He purchased 5,000 shares at $18.14 on June 25, following that up with another 5,000-share buy four days later at $17.65.

Diamonds glitter as Canadian insiders tilt to a rate rally

Move over real estate, insiders appear to be setting up for a long-rate rebound. REITs and other defensive stocks such as utilities lost ground in the semi-annual rebalancing of the 50-stock INK Canadian Insider (CIN) Index. Taking their place is a mix of resource and economically-sensitive industrial stocks.
