Insider Smart

MGM Resorts International (MGM) - If we were to pick one of the easy trade from the crash, it has to be MGM, checkout the impressive insider buying after crash. Do you really need more confidence to pull the trigger? That's the mental edge you need to work against fear.

Insider Smart

PENN NATIONAL GAMING INC (PENN) - PENN took a deep dive from $36 to $5 due to the crash, anyone who was bold enough to pick up some shares in March or April could have made a 900% profit in 2 months. But bottom fishing is always easier said than done, if one took a safer bet and followed multiple insider buying around $18, a 100% profit is still impressive.
