        SEC Charges CR Intrinsic Analyst with Insider Trading
        FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2014-53 Washington D.C., March 13, 2014 —

        The Securities and Exchange Commission today charged a former analyst at an affiliate of hedge fund advisory firm S.A.C. Capital Advisors with insider trading based on nonpublic information that he obtained about a pair of technology companies.

        The SEC alleges that Ronald N. Dennis got illegal tips from two friends who were fellow hedge fund analysts. They provided him confidential details about impending announcements at Dell Inc. and Foundry Networks. Armed with inside information, Dennis prompted illegal trades in Dell and Foundry stock and enabled hedge funds managed by S.A.C. Capital and affiliate CR Intrinsic Investors to generate illegal profits and avoid significant losses.

        Dennis, who lives in Fort Worth, Texas, has agreed to be barred from the securities industry and pay more than $200,000 to settle the SEC’s charges.

        “Like several others before him at S.A.C. Capital and its affiliates, Dennis violated the insider trading laws when he exploited confidential information about public companies, in this case Dell and Foundry, to unjustly benefit the firms and enrich himself,” said Sanjay Wadhwa, senior associate director of the SEC’s New York Regional Office. “His actions have cost him the privilege of working in the hedge fund industry ever again.”

        According to the SEC’s complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, Dennis received illegal tips about Dell’s financial performance from Jesse Tortora, who was then an analyst at Diamondback Capital. Tortora and Diamondback were charged in 2012 along with several other hedge fund managers and analysts as part of the SEC’s broader investigation into expert networks and the trading activities of hedge funds. Dennis separately received an illegal tip about the impending acquisition of Foundry from Matthew Teeple, an analyst at a San Francisco-based hedge fund advisory firm. The SEC charged Teeple and two others last year for insider trading in Foundry stock.

        The SEC alleges that Dennis caused CR Intrinsic and S.A.C. Capital to trade Dell securities based on nonpublic information in advance of at least two quarterly earnings announcements in 2008 and 2009. Dennis obtained confidential details from Tortora, who had obtained the information from a friend who communicated with a Dell insider. Dennis enabled hedge funds managed by CR Intrinsic and S.A.C. Capital to generate approximately $3.2 million in profits and avoided losses in Dell stock. Within minutes after one of the Dell announcements, Tortora sent an instant message to Dennis saying “your welcome.” Dennis responded “you da man!!! I owe you.”

        The SEC’s complaint also alleges Dennis was informed by Teeple in July 2008 about Foundry’s impending acquisition by another technology company. Shortly after receiving the inside information, Dennis caused a CR Intrinsic hedge fund to purchase Foundry stock and generate approximately $550,000 in profits when the news became public.

        The SEC’s complaint charges Dennis with violations of Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, and Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933. Dennis has agreed to pay $95,351 in disgorgement, $12,632.34 in prejudgment interest, and a $95,351 penalty. Without admitting or denying the allegations, Dennis also has agreed to be permanently enjoined from future violations of these provisions of the federal securities laws. The settlement is subject to court approval. He would then be barred from associating with an investment adviser, broker, dealer, municipal securities dealer, or transfer agent in a related administrative proceeding.

        The SEC’s investigation, which is continuing, has been conducted by Michael Holland, Daniel Marcus, and Joseph Sansone of the Enforcement Division’s Market Abuse Unit in New York and Matthew Watkins, Diego Brucculeri, James D’Avino, and Neil Hendelman of the New York Regional Office. The case has been supervised by Sanjay Wadhwa. The SEC appreciates the assistance of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

  1. Gold and Silver Manipulation:

    Instead of simply waiting for the silver shortage to end the manipulation, I thought it advisable to try a new approach that was completely compatible with the real silver story to date.

    Since I (we) couldn’t get the CFTC to do its job and end the manipulation; why not try a different approach?

    The truth is that I have long believed that the right civil lawsuit stood a good chance at ending the manipulation before a silver shortage hit.

    I had high hopes initially that the class-action suit that was filed against JPMorgan for manipulating the price of silver a few years ago might succeed; but it seemed to drift off track and I wasn’t particularly surprised that it was ultimately dismissed. My intent should be clear – I want to see the next lawsuit succeed.

    The stakes in a COMEX silver/gold/copper manipulation lawsuit are staggering.

    Not only is market manipulation the most serious market crime possible, the markets that have been manipulated and the number of those injured are enormous.

    I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that any finding that JPMorgan and the COMEX did manipulate prices as I contend could very well result in the highest damage awards in history. That’s no small thing considering the tens of billions of dollars that JPMorgan has coughed up recently for infractions in just about every line of their business.

  2. Suing JPMorgan and the COMEX [for Gold & Silver Manipulation]
    Theodore Butler | March 21, 2014

    I’ve had some recent conversations with attorneys who were considering class-action lawsuits regarding a gold price manipulation stemming from reports about the London Gold Fix. I told them that while there is no doubt that gold and, particularly, silver are manipulated in price, I didn’t see how the manipulation stemmed from the London Fix. I wished them well and hoped that they may prevail (the enemy of my enemy is my friend), because you never know – if the lawyers dig deep enough they might find the real source of the gold and silver manipulation, namely, the COMEX (owned by the CME Group) and JPMorgan.

    So I thought it might be constructive to lay out what I thought a successful lawsuit might look like, although I’m speaking as a precious metals analyst and not as a lawyer. I’ll try to put the whole thing into proper perspective, including the premise and scope of the manipulation as well as the parties involved.

    The first thing I should mention is how unprecedented it is that I’m writing this in the first place. Here I am, directly and consistently accusing two of the world’s most important financial institutions of market manipulation (making sure I send each all my accusations) and I have received no complaint from either. I don’t think that has ever occurred previously. Now I am taking it one step further; presenting a guide for how and why JPMorgan and the CME should be sued for their manipulation of gold and silver (and copper, too).

    Let me explain why I am doing this. I am still certain that the coming physical silver shortage will end the price manipulation, but I see nothing wrong with trying to hasten that day. Over the past quarter century, I petitioned the regulators incessantly to end the manipulation, but the CFTC refused to do so. Far from regretting my past efforts, I feel it has greatly advanced and legitimized the allegations of manipulation. After 25 years, however, one must recognize that the horse being beaten is dead and that the CFTC will never act.

    So, instead of simply waiting for the silver shortage to end the manipulation, I thought it advisable to try a new approach that was completely compatible with the real silver story to date. Since I (we) couldn’t get the CFTC to do its job and end the manipulation; why not try a different approach? …..


  3. Gold and Silver Manipulation:

    “There have been no serious flash crashes in the stock market in four years; there have been too many HFT price smashes in COMEX gold and silver in that time.

    The most egregious price smashes were the two separate 30%+ price plunges in silver that occurred within a few days, in May and September of 2011. Twice silver fell by $15 in short order, or more than three times the percentage amount of the great May 6, 2010 stock market crash.

    Yet, unlike the immediate attention from the regulators that the 9% temporary decline in the stock market attracted, neither the CFTC nor the CME had any comment whatsoever on the two silver smashes in 2011, even though these were the largest price declines in commodity history and silver was supposedly under a CFTC formal investigation at those times. ”

    Gold manipulation – ex US Treasury top gun tells us how and why
    Former U.S. Treasury Under Secretary, Paul Craig Roberts, asserts that the Fed and its banker allies do indeed manipulate the gold price to their own ends and describes how this is achieved.

    Author: Lawrence Williams
    Posted: Monday , 07 Apr 2014

    …But back to gold.

    Former Reagan era ex U.S. Treasury Assistant Secretary, Paul Craig Roberts, has just published an interesting article on his website which not only states categorically that the gold price is indeed manipulated by the U.S. Fed and its bullion banking allies, but how the price control is achieved, together with illustrative charts.

    Now Roberts may have his own agenda to push, but as a former U.S. Treasury insider – even if of a different era – he should indeed know what he is talking about and his words should be taken seriously by gold bull and bear alike as his views are relevant to those in all gold-related camps.

  5. Gold and Silver Manipulation:

    But under the hood, things got a lot stranger in silver. For starters, the concentrated short position of the four largest shorts increased by nearly 1,900 contracts. Accordingly, I would peg JPMorgan’s short corner in Comex silver to now be 22,000 contracts, up from the 20,000 contracts the bank held last week. After removing spreads (as must be done), JPMorgan holds 16.6% of the short side of the entire Comex short position in silver futures. If the 4 and 8 largest shorts in Comex silver added shorts (which they did to the tune of 2.200 contracts combined) and the commercial short position increased by less than 500 contracts that means the raptors (the smaller commercials apart from the big 8) had to buy 1,700 new longs, which was the case.

    Here’s what is so strange – even as the raptors have built up their net long position by almost 18,000 contracts to 37,500 contracts since March 4, JPMorgan and the other 7 big silver shorts have added 7,000 new shorts in that same time (with JPM accounting for 4,000 new short contracts).

    In fact, the concentrated net short position of the 8 largest Comex silver shorts is now at the highest level in three and a half years; 66,435 contracts, or the equivalent of 332 million oz.

    Huh? Silver prices are stinking up the joint and near the lowest levels in 3.5 years and the concentrated short position is the largest it has been in that time.

    What other evidence is required to prove that silver has been manipulated lower by JPMorgan and the other concentrated Comex shorts?

    Up until very recently, the raptors and JPMorgan and the other big concentrated silver shorts generally worked the same side of the street, but with different agendas. Usually it was the raptors and the big shorts aligned against and milking the technical funds; the raptors for pure profit, the big shorts in order to contain the price first, with profits a secondary objective. That meant that the raptors and JPM and the other big silver shorts all bought and sold in harmony. These past four or five weeks have featured a very different pattern with the raptors buying big and JPM and the other big shorts actually selling pretty heavy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the raptors adding long contracts while JPM and the others added shorts.

  6. The following info is posted because it closely aligns with the Deep Capture website and those who visit it.

    Please access:

    It would be interesting to know if Patrick Byrne, and those that publish for him on Deep Capture, know who Ambassador Lee Emil Wanta is. At any rate the Deep Capture website’s search capability does not indicate any knowledge of him.

    In a short summary of his life experience Ambassador Wanta, during the Reagan Administration, engaged in a plan to bring down the Soviet Union through financial means.

    As a disclaimer on what some might suspect, Wanta is completely against the Federal Reserve System, and states that the country cannot return to its former greatness until it is dissolved. He also provides proof that the Prescott Bush had agreed to a plea bargain agreement that none of the Bush family would engage in politics in order for Prescott Bush to be discharged of the findings of the court that he had engaged in espionage (Trading With The Enemy) against the United States. Thus the Bush Presidencies have violated the plea bargain agreement and their Presidencies are illegal and should never have happened. I’m still not sure how Reagan came to the decision to appoint George H. W. Bush as his Vice President, except Wanta’s contention is that Reagan’s advisors stated it was required to get the votes to be elected.

    1. I am not sure which is funnier – that you ‘Wanta’ people are still around or that there are still people who think that some form of a ‘Global settlement’ was hatched for owners of CMKX.

  7. Gold and Silver Manipulation:

    “The biggest difference between gold and silver is that the 8 largest shorts in gold are holding an historically low short position, while the big 8’s silver short position is historically large at more than 320 million oz.

    The difference can be explained by JPMorgan having been successful in getting to be the biggest long in gold, while remaining the largest short in COMEX silver.

    The fact that the actions of one bank can explain the difference also makes it easy to point to JPMorgan as the prime market crook in COMEX gold and silver….”
