Not at all surprised to see a pre-official release leak of the Google figures that dropped $20 bilion off their share price. It used to happen in the past. In fact I have heard of a printer's devil in India many years ago taking the proof to the editor and reading it on the way and within a few years becoming quite wealthy, wealthy enough to buy tea plantations and hotels, factories and real estate!
So when I read about the altruistic Rajat Gupta's case, I wonder what is the distinction between information and insider information. Dealers, tipsters, hedge fund managers are all there to make money, and they are not going to say No to any information that gives them an edge. It is a very grey area what constitutes information and insider information, as there are lots of bits and pieces of information in the public domain, plus savvy clerks and secretaries in organisations who are always on the lookout for tidbits which will earn them some side income. With jobs in brokerages disappearing so fast, can't blame for people clutching at straws or pulling some old tricks.
