  • Tell me again why the stock market is necessarily a good thing? All I see is legalized gambling run by white collar mafia. If a company needs capital to invest in its production, they can go to the bank and put down their house note like everyone else.
  • That's not suspect at all
  • I'm not sure this is even a crime anymore.

    I've been reading a lot of Michael Lewis's books, and I can't say you're wrong.

    The other option is an unregulated black market of gambling on company value. At least if you have a 401K, you won't be totally hosed with divsersification as if you were a risky single market investor. The FCC will try and maybe help your situation indirectly as a poor. They will obviously help you if you are a "job creator ".

    FCC? Okay, too much to drink. FTC.
  • The spike and subsequent drop-off should be pretty obvious to anyone who realizes that promising results don't immediately lead to a vaccine. Even if this research does lead to a functional vaccine it won't be for months yet and stock prices are sure to fall in that time so if I owned any stocks in the company I would have sold them as well and rebuy once the price goes down again.

    A quick death does not induce enough fear in these types of "people".  They are psychopaths.  They don't fear death.  The only way to deter these " people" is truly horrific punishments.  Have them strapped to a table and then force fed their own body parts.  Then when all the non essential parts are eaten.  Have doctors keep them alive, and conscious for as long as possible.  Make sure to stream the whole punishment on youtube.  Then when they finally die, have their accomplices eat the half corpse.

    In the future, when mind uploading is possible, just before death, the consciousness of the psychopath should be uploaded into a virtual prison environment where they are in solitary confinement and tortured for as long as there is an energy gradient in the universe.  Trillions of years.  No suicide possible and no zoning out.  And have their experience time be sped up so they experience quadrillions of years of solitary torture.

    Death is easy, everybody gets it.  We need to take away the chance of normal death and normal life from these "people".  They need to know that if they commit crimes like this that they leave behind anything resembling their old life.  They become auto cannibals.  Possibly for quadrillions of years.

    It won't stop them all, but fear of having to eat your own self to death might get about half of these types of " people" to fly right.
  • The other day he said he would divest himself and he did. Just like he said he would.

    He also said he would take the profits and donate them to charity.

    Gosh.

    I want him to roll them into more researchers, not into his tax write-offs.
  • This is pretty much how it is supposed to work. You don't keep your invested money in the company you work for. You sell it and buy other investments. Otherwise if the company goes under you lose both your income and your retirement. This is "explained to me at age 19" level stuff here. And it is still true today.

    If these were automated trades triggered by price increases, then of course they made a chunk of change, that's the point if a sell order, and the only suspicious thing is the execution of the options. But I don't know if exercising options is limited like other purchases and sells are for executives.
  • America really is a great country, for a very select few.  Moderna, a 10 year old drug company that has never put a product on the market and is currently being propped up by federal dollars, has executives issuing promising news on a pandemic vaccine shortly before planned share sell offs, yet there are still farkers going to bat for them talking about retirement accounts and how this is how the system is supposed to work.  Farking capitalism and stupidity, match made in heaven.

    "These plans regulate when and how many shares company insiders, including directors and executives, are allowed to sell. The transactions are typically executed automatically, without the insiders taking any action. "

    It was a legal automatic transaction under their plan (10b5-1).  It's literally how they are structured.  You people are acting like they barbecued live kittens in front of school children.

    Calm down.  And fark CNN's clickbait headline.
  • fusillade762: Pump and dump.


    It kind of looks like it.

    I'm too lazy to see if the company's 10K is out there to look at (it would give the details of the option arrangement). It may be a combination of timing and a too optimistic forecast.

    Anyway, I wouldn't touch the stock with the Orange Dick.
  • So, now that I'm privy to inside information at my company, I can see that there is probably insider trading happening.  When I read that we got a big contract, before the news is public, the price jumps.  Vice versa for losing a contract.  The SEC doesn't do anything unless it's forced to.

    My problem was that everyone is asking why they released rosy news at such an early point in the process.  Considering that executives knew the dates of their transactions, it looks to me like they did it to maximize share price on their sale date.  It's not illegal. It's just unethical.
  • I'm as hopeful as anyone for a vaccine, but the market's out of its mind right now. Utterly detached from reality. This ~4,000pt recovery in the DJIA from the initial drop makes no damned sense to me given nobody knows what this economy actually looks like right now. And the idea all will be well a year from now is just goofy.

    Then you've got people rushing into stocks like Moderna at even the hint of good news no matter how BS it turns out to be. Nobody's paying attention to actual value.

    The stock market as it was intended to be is a good thing it brings in outside money to help grow a business and ideally both sides can benefit. The stock market as it is now seems to mostly be people making a living off the side bets which is how we get into situations like what happened in 2008.

    Think the tail end of a Manic patient on a six day coke/meth binge. You know what's coming. You know you can't do a damn thing about it. And you hope you aren't around when it completely blows up.
