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.

SYSCO CORP (SYY) - PELTZ NELSON and Frank Joshua D are insiders of SYSCO CORP, check their transactions to see how they sell high and buy low. Would that be more persuasive than just buy or sell?

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.
