Why insider trading matters?

If management teams do not own any relevant stakes in the companies they guide, they may not be focused on creating wealth for shareholders to the same degree, compared to those that see their personal wealth increase when share prices rise.

Insider Smart

Ovintiv Inc (OVV) - Insiders of OVV have been HEAVILY accumulating shares in March with a sub-$3 cost. And the stock is now $11. An awesome 400% gain can't be missed if you found it was heavily accumulated earlier.

Insider Smart

Enphase Energy, Inc (ENPH) - ENPH was $10+ in 15Q1 then dropped to $2 and eventually went under $1. From 15Q4 to 17Q4 it built a 2-year-long base then BOOM! Stock went as high as $70 and likely will make a new high. Catch one or two moves like this you can retire early. One hint before the big move was that CEO and CFO were constantly accumulating, this kind of information is priceless.
