Trading on confidential information remains hard to resist despite a decade of criminal enforcement and prison terms for those who get caught and prosecuted.
And as long as that is the case, insider trading will remain a focus for the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Four cases in December show that reality.
William T. Walters, one of America’s most famous gamblers, had his convictions for insider trading affirmed on Dec. 4 by the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan. He is serving a five-year prison term for trading shares of Dean Foods based on information he received from the former chairman of the company’s board, Thomas Davis.
His case was less about insider trading law and more about whether the investigation was tainted by what Mr. Walters’s lawyer labeled “extraordinary government misconduct.” The government admitted before trial that David Chaves, an F.B.I. special agent, leaked information about the investigation to reporters at The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. The defense argued that Mr. Chaves made the disclosures to revive a dormant investigation, which led to Mr. Davis’s cooperation with the government and testimony against Mr. Walters.
The appeals court called the agent’s conduct “highly improper” and said that the leaks “violated the grand jury secrecy provision” of Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e). Still, the court found that the leaks did not taint Mr. Walters’s conviction because the grand jury’s decision to indict was not influenced by the news media reports. Thus, the convictions stand despite the misconduct of Mr. Chaves.
In a second criminal insider trading case, prosecutors asked the Federal District Court in Manhattan on Dec. 4 to schedule a retrial of Sean Stewart, a former investment banker whose convictions were overturned in November. The appeals court found that the trial judge improperly excluded evidence that could be used to undermine a statement made by Mr. Stewart’s father that was the linchpin of the government’s case that Mr. Stewart improperly tipped his father to the impending deals.
Mr. Stewart’s father said his son once berated him for not trading on information that he provided on a “silver platter.” Although the statement is problematic, the defense will have a better opportunity at the retrial to show the father might have just made it up. After his arrest, the father told agents that his son did not know about the trading or tipping of confidential information.
In insider trading prosecutions, it is up to the jury to decide whom to believe when a defendant denies having any improper motive. The problem for a defendant like Mr. Stewart is that the widely held perception that Wall Street bankers trade on inside information is difficult to overcome.
Also in December, the Federal District Court in Atlanta rejected an effort by Jun Ying, the former chief information officer at Equifax, to dismiss insider trading charges. Mr. Ying exercised all of his vested stock options and sold nearly million in shares a little more than a week before the company disclosed the hack of its database in September 2017, according to the S.E.C. He argued that the government had not shown that he had “used” confidential information about the hack when he sold the shares.
The question of how the government can show a defendant used inside information, even if it can prove the person knew it, can be difficult. In this case, prosecutors are relying on internet searches Mr. Ying conducted into the effect of hacks on other credit reporting companies, like Experian, and the timing of the trades to show that he must have based the trading decision on the inside information he gathered about the hacking at Equifax and not a more benign reason. By selling the shares when he did, the defendant gained 0,000. That’s something a jury is likely to view suspiciously. The stock dropped over 15 percent after news of the data breach was made public.
The government often portrays insider trading as motivated by greed, and the opportunity to make money can prove irresistible when the only real victim of the violation is the faceless securities market.
The lure of easy profits is apparent in civil charges filed by the S.E.C. against Rajeshwar R. Gannamaneni and his wife and father for trading ahead of 40 deals over four years. Mr. Gannamaneni was an information technology contractor for an investment bank in Singapore, and the three defendants are accused of making almost 0,000 from their trading.
Hiding insider trading can be difficult if a person makes outsize profits, which will quickly draw the attention of the stock and options exchanges. But if one can keep the trading profits small, there is a chance that it might fly under the radar, at least for a time. The problem with this approach is that making a little bit of money is not nearly as satisfying as making a lot, so greed starts to take over.
The charges against Mr. Gannamaneni and the other two defendants show that they started small, usually making a profit of less than ,000, and once only . But by 2015 and 2016, their profit on trades was as high as ,000. That is sure to draw the interest of the S.E.C.’s market surveillance office, which looks for patterns of successful trading.
The lesson from Mr. Gannamaneni’s case is that confidential information exerts a powerful pull to make more and more easy money, which means that one is much more likely to get caught. So if you think the government will not notice your well-timed trades, increasing your profit means there is a much higher chance that you will be discovered.B:
