    Crony capitalism lives. Ferdinand Marcos must be so proud.

    Is it insider trading if the information comes from the government?

    I hope MacRumors reports on this so we can once again get to see the dos equis 40 year old virgin photo of Icahn on the front page.

    yes. It's insider trading if you act on information supplied by someone who is in a position to materially affect the stock price.

    True lol.. Would make things easier if all conflicts of interest related things though were in the same thread. You could then see how many of them Trump and his inner circle along with family and friends can rack up ;)
