I wanted to start a thread that collates shares showing significant insider dealings (large size or significant cluster buys) as well as significant insider refinancings. There's nothing like increased "skin in the game" by management, founders or other insiders to indicate where there's value. And in a market like this where there's so much in flux, it's a particularly useful signal. Please do add comments where you've seen significant insider activity.
