Interesting timing. I wonder how he found out ahead of time?

As the saying goes, timing is everything.
Investor and former regulatory advisor Carl Icahn dumped $31.1 million of stock in a Wisconsin company that relies heavily on steel to make its products last week, days before President Donald Trump said he'd impose stiff tariffs on steel imports.....

Hey, the Dow's been dropping like a rock the past month.  That's lotsa people selling off.  Are Trump and Icahn buddies?
I will NOT comply.

$31.1 million is not a big deal for Icahn and the stock price hasn't dropped by much. This is a nadaburger, IMO.

If you allude to Mueller then it should be said that he is special counsel and not special prosecutor.

LOL...It's fallen by 10% just since Trump's announcement.

He dumped this at $32.47 to $34.31, and it's now at $26.93.

It might be an innocent move, but don't pretend a few day change of 10% is nothing or that he didn't get out nicely before Donnie slumped the manufacturing sector.

And.... apparently.... insider trading is a nadaburger to the Swamp Dwellers.  Illegal for anyone else, of course... but the DC gators are "special creatures" dontcha know.
