Why insider trading matters?

Numerous studies have examined whether there is evidence that U.S. insiders systematically trade on private information despite the legal deterrence. The consensus appears to be that insider purchases (but not sales) tend to be followed by positive abnormal stock price performance, particularly for small growth stocks.

Insider Smart

Delta Airlines (DAL) - From an insider's perspective: airlines are the first ones to go under due to the pandemic. A lot of concerns were raised on possible bankruptcy especially amid by the dump from Buffett. However, insiders of Delta were bold enough to buy when Buffett was fear. And Delta is the only airline bought by insiders post-Buffett-dump.
