Notes on portfolio changes from the head of our investment committee Dave Martin
I keep seeing articles about insider trading. Recently, in the Supreme Court’s ruling on Dirks they state that “Absent some personal gain, there has been no breach of duty to stockholders. And absent a breach by the insider, there is no derivative breach.” Which, I think, implies that as long as the insider doesn’t enjoy giving away secret, confidential information it’s ok.
