Former SAC Capital Advisors LP portfolio manager Mathew Martoma, charged in what prosecutors called the biggest-ever insider trading case, appeared in federal court in New York…He was arrested at his Boca Raton, Florida, home Nov. 20 and freed on $5 million bond. He appeared today before U.S. Magistrate Judge James Cott in Manhattan. The defense and prosecution today agreed to a modified bail package under which the $5 million bond must be secured by $2 million in cash or property, as well as signatures from three instead of two financially responsible people. Martoma has surrendered his and his children’s travel documents. He’s limited to Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey and parts of New York. [Bloomberg]

    Judge Cott further denied the defendant's request to put up two Zamboni machines in lieu of the $2 million in cash or property.

    Ironic the guy was arrested in a place named "Rat Hole" in Spanish.

    Also ironic that place is for some reason posh.

    For better or worse, he got caught doing what every other fund that invests in biotech companies does. Unfortunately for Martoma, he happens to work for Stevie Cohen, whom the feds have been dying to take down for years.

    I think he's positioned more as the dancer/comedic actor. But he can probably duet in a pinch.

    I love the down-points on this comment.
    Like anyone without insider information has an "edge" trading biotechs.

    My crystal ball shows a rapidly rising prosecutor and a future client number 10… it's human nature.

    If Stevie was a fat sweaty Sri Lankan, I'm pretty sure he would've been named by name in the case.

    Looks like the prosecutor, Pareet Barara, who is of Indian origin, is after insider traders of similar background– Raj Gupta, Rajaratnam ( Sri Lanka), and now Martoma!
