Hi, answer to your query is as follows:

A watch list is used by brokerage firms or companies where there is a suspect of irregularities, potential for insider trading or any other corruption. For example: a brokerage firm has a watch list for the companies indulged in regulatory violations.
A watch list can also be used as a monitoring tool for potential trading and investing opportunities of securities. For example: an investor is waiting for criteria to be met such as breaking a 52 week range before placing the order for a certain level of volume.

Rumor list is simply a list of those companies that have rumors of suspected transactions with the possibilities of insider trading. For example Brokerage firm has a list of companies which they are keeping a close eye on trading with the suspected transactions and possibilities of insider trading.
