It Sure Looks Like Wall Street Insiders Are Bracing for a Stock Market Plunge

  • A flurry of insider selling during May suggests those at the helm know something the wider stock market doesn’t: a correction is coming.
  • Over the past year, May 2020 has seen more insider sales than any other month, with those in the know dumping $4.6 billion worth of shares.
  • Insider activity can be misleading because executives often cash in through pre-arranged, recurring transactions.
  • Other notable insider sales in May included Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG) Vice Chairman and CFO Jon Moeller dumping $15 million worth of PG shares and Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) Director Joly Hubert shedding $17.5 million in BBY stock.
  • It could be in response to a stock market-wide correction that U.S. business leaders fear is waiting on the horizon.
  • But between the CFO survey and the rising tide of stock sales in the C-suite, it’s a trend worth keeping an eye on.

Trump announces he's 'terminating' the US relationship with the World Health Organization - Business Insider

Can a business legally kick you out for refusing to wear a mask? Probably, and here's why. - Business Insider

  • Business Insider spoke to lawyer Aaron Goldstein, a partner at Dorsey & Whitney LLP specializing in employment and corporate policy, and James Biscone, a personal injury and workers' compensation attorney at Johnson & Biscone, about whether businesses have the legal power to eject customers who don't comply with mask-wearing policies.
  • If a customer chooses to defy a mask-wearing policy for anything other than physical incapability, the business has the legal right to eject them from the premises.
  • Goldstein recommends that businesses should call law enforcement when they encounter a customer who refuses to comply with their mask-wearing policy.
  • However, Biscone said that even though businesses may have a legal right to remove a customer from its premises for violating its policy, actually enforcing that policy may be harder.
