One electric utility has seen intensive insider buying during the last 30 days. Intensive insider buying can be defined by the following three criteria:
The stock is purchased by three or more insiders within one month.
The stock is sold by no insiders in the month of intensive purchasing.
At least two purchasers increase their holdings by more than 10%.
Capital Power Corporation (TSX:CPX), an independent power producer, acquires, develops and operates power generation facilities in Canada and the U.S.

Insider Buying During the Last 30 Days
Here is a table of Capital Power's insider-trading activity by calendar month.
There have been 17,741 shares purchased and there have been zero shares sold by insiders since March 2013.
Capital Power reported the second-quarter financial results on July 26 with the following highlights:

Capital Power expects full year 2013 financial results to exceed the high end of its annual guidance of $1.20 to $1.40 for normalized earnings per share and $3.80 to $4.20 for cash flow per share.

Capital Power's competitors include TransAlta Corp. (TAC) and Calpine Corp. (CPN). TransAlta has not seen any insider buy transactions during the past six months. TransAlta has a dividend yield of 8.4%. Calpine has seen five insider sell transactions and one insider buy transaction this year.
There have been three different insiders buying Capital Power and there have not been any insiders selling Capital Power during the last 30 days. All three of these insiders increased their holdings by more than 10%.
There are three analyst buy ratings, five neutral ratings and two sell ratings with an average target price of $23.68. Capital Power has a book value of $30.22 per share and the stock has a dividend yield of 5.9%. I believe the stock could be a good pick below the book value of $30.22 per share.
Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
