Have you heard something that we haven't? How do you know?

Ex-AMD Chief Tied to Insider Trading Scandal
Jane, there was more information in your article about other high ups in this scandal than Hector Ruiz. Why the one sided title?

Glad to see the government cracking down on these people.

Today's news about Ruiz is the most recent development in an ongoing story. That said, the whole thing is quite confusing so I wanted to include a recap of what has transpired so far. :)

Why is it that it is always these rich-ass CEO's that try to cheat for some extra cash? All the while us honest, hard working, tax paying, law abiding citizens can hardly make ends meet with our bogus health insurance policies, and false promises of a prosperous future. Ain't that the shits.

I would agree but this is Tom's first article about the scandal (unless I missed it) so this is technically all new information for Tom's readers.

When did this come about? As others have stated this is the first we've heard about it... If not someone put some links up on this.

Quite simply because you don't have the millions of $$$ necessary to invest in a company where the shares going up a few % points will make you any significant money. For example, to make 500,000 $, you need maybe 5,000,000 at a 10% increase. If you have that much money invested in a company, you won't be on the Toms Hardware forums.

yep that is very true. Also a lot of not so rich people cheat too, people in restaurants I used to work hide their income and collect social security. The problem is it will cost more $$ to investigate them than the money government could collect.

Lazy is not the opposite of greedy....

Poor people are poor because of a lack of oppourtunity. Now some poor people make opportunity for themselves and become not poor. But rich people don't even have to make opportunites for themselves, the apportunities come to them. They just latch on. This is also called the stock market.

/amband cheepstuff for a ignorance.

Hector Ruiz had ties to G.W. Bush, it was in his bio on AMD's site.

Bush is the epitome of a 7th generation rich kid idiot who inherited wealth and opportunity, just like ChuvelxD's excellent commentary....

i was using that as an example. i'm just saying it is wrong to say someone is greedy because they are wealthy. there are a lot of hardworking poor people in the world, and there are a bunch of lazy/greedy/whatever character flaw here people in the world. it is wrong to generalize someone by one vague characteristic alone.

This story isn't new, the SEC has been pulling names of interest from lots of major Wall Street firms related to this scandal this month. I haven't seen news of the case on Tom's though.
