Council of Institutional Investors Urges SEC to Curb Abuses of 10b5-1 Trading Plans

The Council of Institutional Investors has written its second letter to the SEC calling for re-examination of Rule 10b5-1 trading plans, which allow corporate insiders to trade in their company's stock pursuant to advance plans, and issuance of guidance or further rulemaking to prevent abuses.  CII notes that "Since the issuance of our letter, evidence continues to mount that many companies and company insiders have adopted practices that are inconsistent with the spirit, if not the letter of Rule 10b5-1" and cites articles in the Wall St. Journal.

The WSJ also featured the CII's letter in today's issue:  SEC Is Pressed to Revamp Executive Trading Plans
