  • The fund last made a buy, also for about $6 million, back in October. Since then, one company division president started a 9,009 share stake, paying about $500,000. And one company EVP was a seller of shares back in November.

    Overall, company insiders own 0.4 percent of shares, and institutions own nearly all of the remaining outstanding shares, indicating a tight supply available for retail investors.

    The roofing supply company’s shares have traded flat over the past year, significantly outperforming the overall stock market. That was assisted by a 29 percent rise in revenues over the past year, and by a 48 percent rise in earnings.

    Action to take: The stock is still reasonably valued at about 10 times earnings. Shares are well positioned for a rebound in real estate activity following last year’s slowdown. Investors may like shares at current prices or on a drop, although the stock does not pay a dividend.
