Default Re: Is This Insider Trading?

1. Favorable clinical trials at my company haven't been announced yet. So I can't buy the stock. But I short a competitor's stock.

2. I'm at a pay phone and I overhear the president of IBM lamenting the surprisingly bad earnings for this quarter as he speaks to the chairman on the neigboring phone. I short IBM.

3. I hear two apparent terrorists in the neigboring booth at a restaurant talk about throwing a bomb into the Wynn casino every day for a week. I notify the FBI but I also short the stock.

you are using material nonpublic information to make bets on the market. are you dumb, this is all so cut and dry insider trading.... you understand that the idea behind insider trading is that you abuse the system and take advantage of NONPUBLIC information.
