Keek Inc. (KEK:TSXV) has been rising ferociously in the month of June, in the wake of insider buying from Sheldon Inwentash and following a key appointment to the social video sharing company.

A significant surge in insider buying has coincided with Keek’s rise of late. Volume in the company has been gradually increasing as Keek has become one of the most liquid stocks on the TSX Venture.

After hitting a multi-week low of $0.105 per share on June 11th, Keek put out quite the significant news release on June 12th. We’ll touch on that development and the recent price action in the stock shortly.
