SAC Capital Advisors LP, the $14 billion hedge fund run by Steven A. Cohen, plans to hold a conference call with clients tomorrow, according to an investor who asked not to be named because the information is private. SAC executives have reached out to the firm’s largest investors to calm concern about Cohen’s trading in Elan Corp. and Wyeth LLC after prosecutors for the first time tied the hedge-fund founder to a specific transaction at the center of an insider-trading investigation.

    Rule #1 – the minute anyone (your wife,child,boss,lover…) tells you 'don't worry…' – start worrying.

    Martomo is set for life. He's had 10 months for his lawyers and Stevie's lawyers to strike a deal. $20 million deposited today. $10 million for every year in Club Fed, if any. Just a month's or week's work for Steve.

    The guys is 38 with kids, looking at 20years max; don't think that would work unless you can somehow guarantee a relatively short FPMITA stay.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests – we did.

    Matt Levine: "Mr. Cohen, I want to congratulate you on your continued indignance towards these useless insider trading laws and was wondering if you had any need for a very good chart maker or at the very least someone sympathetic to your cause?"

    publicized events like this gather investors attention and also builds confidence. it a ploy of course to distract investors off of what is to come which can not be good. When they are trying extra hard to look good beware of the bad that is to come basically.
