Change "couple dozen" to "many thousands" and I'll agree with you.

stock symbol for Dean Foods is DF

pretty flat running stock, one big exception being in May 2013, when it dropped about 22 points [something similar in 2007]. A lot of money to be made shorting it.

Real Estate, fraud, and crooked roulette wheels made him good coin, his sportsbetting prowess is highly overrated and overestimated.

The fact that Mickelson was fined and had his name prominently appear in national news stories may also work in Walters' favor. The prosecutors are already getting positive press for "doing something" about insider trading. The government may not feel they need to be quite as aggressive to get good publicity. They can offer a plea deal and say justice was served. I agree. Walters will do little if any jail time. But I think a fine and probation are highly probable.

Here's another from the on-line FORTUNE Magazine site.

"How Phil Mickelson Got a Mulligan on His Insider Trading Scandal"

http://fortune.com/2016/05/21/phil-mickelson-insider-trading-scandal/

"Nonetheless, according to the SECís complaint, the day after talking to Walters, Mickelson allegedly bought over 200,000 shares of Dean Foods or $2.4 million worth, according to the SEC complaint. Some of the shares were bought with marginóor money borrowed from the brokeróand spread among three different accounts. A week later, Dean Foods announced it was doing a spin-off and that earnings were better than expected. Dean Foodsí shares spiked and Mickelson allegedly immediately sold, according to the SEC, pocketing nearly $1 million in roughly a week. Mickelson later allegedly used some of the money he made to pay back what he owed to the Walters, according to the SEC. Mickelsonís lawyer says the SEC has its facts wrong, but didnít say which ones.

Bail just set at $25 million.

The Feds are really serious on this one. What do we set the odds at that Walters will skip bail and disappear? We can also bet what country would he go to that would not extradite him.
