Why insider trading matters?

When insiders buy shares on the open market, this can thus be regarded as a strong endorsement by those that know the company the best -- they are literally betting their own money on the company's future. Insider selling, however, is not necessarily meaningful in any way, as there is a range of reasons for insiders to liquidate (some) of the shares they own.

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.

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.
