The SEC's complaint alleges that, in July 2015, during counseling sessions, the Zulily employee told Kenneth Peer that Zulily was going to be acquired by Liberty Interactive, a media holding company. On three occasions between July 21, 2015 and August 10, 2015, after counseling sessions with the Zulily employee, Peer purchased a total of over $28,000 of Zulily stock. The complaint alleges that, before the market opened on August 17, 2015, Zulily announced that it had agreed to be acquired by Liberty Interactive in a tender offer. By the end of trading that day, Zulily's stock allegedly had risen by 49%, with nearly 15 times the stock's average daily trading volume. Shortly after the acquisition was announced, Peer allegedly sold all of his Zulily shares for illegal profits of approximately $10,000.

Ten GRAND?! That's it? He had the dark edge and only pocketed a measly ten grand? This guy should be brought up on more charges for not comprehending human greed.
