I have a few friends in low places with big ears. They hear and know things, they are not board members but are in the know about their own respected companies. Let's just say the information they have is useable.
I have never relied, nor asked them ever about any of it, but we do share ideas and shoot sh|t about the stock market etc. We are all good guys, with good morals, and I wouldn't call us greedy.
But let's just say that two weeks ago, one guy slipped some info, and to keep it short, $10000 would have been worth $17500 today.
Now I look at this and say, whatever, it's cheating, and I'm not a cheater. Plus it's not worth going to jail for it.
But then I ask myself, there must be a sh|t load of people who wouldn't think twice about it.
