Golfer Phil Mickelson profited from Dean Foods insider trades, SEC says - MarketWatch

   With Tiger gone, Phil is one of the few left as a bridge to a previous era of golf and now he gets bumped around because the took a stock tip later found to be the result of "insider" trading.
    And he has to give up the profit from his trading in Dean Foods.
    Isn't getting a tip a good thing ? Everything is criminalized these days. At least he didn't end up like poor Martha.

Yes getting a tip is a good thing. If its an insider tip its a crime. Can you see the difference?
An insider tip is when someone making the decisions or who has inside knowledge about the business, uses those decisions or that knowledge to take advantage of the other stockholders.

I heard Jeff Graham say on the HOT LINE a few days ago when this story broke: "I see nothing wrong with insider trading." Profound...!!!

I almost fell off my chair.

Speak of giving good tips. In 2001 Larry Silverstein got a tip that 911 was going to happen so he insured the WTC at about 7Billion. Bush got word so he told pappy and the rest of the Bushes along with the Bin Ladens and they upped their interests in Oil. Federal Reserve got word so they stole their own gold from beneath the WTC and of course Cheny got a tip and Hallaberten made about3-5 Billion plus all the others the planners let in on it. Isreal made out good also .. Big Pharma in the US got a tip so they control the opiom of Afghanastan.. Funny how the world changed to opiom users (which is now epicdemic) and big Pharma made their painkillers which is now epicdemic now...
Want a good tip...VOTE TRUMP AND STOP SOME OF THIS KIND OF SHIT.

4:37: You may want to consider a spell checker ... or just stick with your current motto:

"Poor spellers of the world untie...!!!"

"Cheny" is actually "Cheney"
"Hallabertin" is really "Halliburton"
"Isreal" is spelled "Israel"
"Afghanastin" is spelled "Afghanistan"
"Opiom" is really bad stuff, but spelled "Opium"
and
"Epicdemic" is what: oh, yeah: "Epidemic"

Yes, I do read stuff here and yes, I guess I'm nitpicky, too - old teaching habits to 10th graders in WHS...

437 should consider fact check.

Dannie, time for a change. Being wet about nothing is not really becoming of you. In your case, faux American is the only thing that needs correct spelling. So he gets excited, that 4:37 dude. So do you, whenever your party owners tell you to.
