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.

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.

Camping World Holdings, Inc (CWH) - Another crash victim, Camping World Holdings, Inc took a deep dive from $16 to $4, several insiders bought around $6. With insiders on your side, this would be an easy add and hold to get your cost under $6. A 300% gain because stock is about to breach $25 in the coming weeks.
