Why insider trading matters?

Insiders might sell their shares for any number of reasons, but they buy them for only one: they think the price will rise.

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.
