Equifax is investigating executive stock sales

Equifax is investigating three executives who sold company shares worth nearly $2 million shortly after a massive data breach was discovered, but before the company announced the breach to the public.

3. Perhaps the SEC should follow their example?

Seems interesting to me, at least. I would personally take great pleasure in seeing Equifax go bankrupt, frankly. They are vile.

4. Investigating?

Didn't Equifax already issue a statement that these three executives all made the decision to sell stock totally independently of one another, and without any knowledge that Equifax had fucked up colossally?

Why yes, yes Equifax did say that:

http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/08/549434187/3-equifax-executives-sold-stock-days-after-hack-that-wasnt-disclosed-for-a-month

Three executives of the credit-reporting agency Equifax sold nearly $2 million worth of company stock within days of a massive data breach potentially affecting 143 million Americans one that wasn't publicly disclosed until more than a month later.

In a statement, Equifax says the executives "had no knowledge that an intrusion had occurred at the time they sold their shares."


So, what is there for Equifax to investigate?

6. They said they're innocent - what more do you people need to hear?

Geez!
