Gaming Realms powered up 20% to 7.95p after news that its chairman made a £100,000 purchase of shares.
The company announced that Michael Buckley upped his stake in the esports company to 9.5% as he snaffled another 2mln ordinary shares last Friday.
Meanwhile, Rainbow Rare Earths Ltds (LON:RBW) chief executive George Bennett and chairman Adonis Pouroulis both bought 5.5mln shares at a price of 3p per shares.
The directors spent £163,934 each, taking their combined stake in the mining company to 27.5%, which they said underlined their "commitment to, and confidence in, the company and the Gakara project".

The two nuggets of news combined to lift the shares 6% to 2.65p.
