Insider Trading with a Twist of Schadenfreude

As one reader points out, recently nailed insider trader Stanislav Shpigelmanwill now be able to read DealBreaker, as he won't be working for Merrill anymore. Which makes it all worth it, we think. (Do they have Internet access in minimum security federal prison?)
And the gossip is already spreading. Says one reader:

One of my colleagues opens the story and soon after shouts: "Hey, that's the guy in college whose homework I used to do!" Apparently, Mr. Plotkin was very persuasive even back in school.

It's a small world after all, and if it weren't, there would be no insider trading.
