Stock Buybacks: In the Crosshairs of the SEC

-or-

The Canary in the Coal Mine?

By: Dave Lavigne

Just recently SEC commissioner Robert J. Jackson Jr. gave a speech to the Center for American Progress wherein he questioned the current rules regarding corporate stock buybacks and perhaps the practice in general, even calling for an open comment period regarding the issue.  Specifically, for the policy wonks, he referred to Rule 10b-18, which the SEC adopted in 1982.  As the Commission notes:

In 1982, the Commission adopted Rule 10b-18, which provides that an issuer will not be deemed to have violated Sections 9(a)(2) and 10(b) of the Exchange Act, and Rule 10b-5 under the Exchange Act, solely by reason of the manner, timing, price, or volume of its repurchases, if the issuer repurchases its common stock in the market in accordance with the safe harbor conditions. Rule 10b-18's safe harbor conditions are designed to minimize the market impact of the issuer's repurchases, thereby allowing the market to establish a security's price based on independent market forces without undue influence by the issuer.

Just to edify, 10b-18 was established as a framework to allow corporations a “Safe Harbor” from violations of Rule 10b-5 when repurchasing their shares in the public market. I believe, Rule 10b-5 was adopted in the early 1940’s  following the Commission’s recognition that the “employment of manipulative and deceptive practices" might apply to the purchase of securities as opposed to just the sale of securities. As a result,  Rule 10b-5 is often the hook for insider trading violations.

Latest Happenings

Crypto Currencies
A cool idea for a new world digitally connected.    US regulators- Not on our watch!!

This is a good way for the government to help ensure ICO’s never work here in the U.S.  Confuse the hell out of everyone as to what rules apply and you literally freeze everyone’s ability to do anything.  Government oversight at its finest.

A nice overview from Dave Lopez- 7-18

In the continuing dilemma over determining just what kind of asset a cryptocurrency is, multiple regulators have expressed opinions and differing views on regulations. Likewise, multiple regulators have conducted investigations and initiated enforcement proceedings against those in the cybersecurity space. The SEC has asserted the opinion that most, if not all, cryptocurrencies are securities; the CFTC has found them to be commodities; the IRS's official definition is the same as the CFTC, and in particular a digital representation of value that functions as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and/or a store of value, and now the Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN) has asserted that issuers of cryptocurrencies are money transmitters. In particular, in a letter written to the US Senate Committee on Finance on February 13, 2018, FinCEN indicates that it expects issuers of initial coin offerings (ICOs) to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), including its anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) requirements. FinCEN's letter responded to a December 14, 2017 directed to it from the US Senate Committee on Finance requesting information on FinCEN's oversight and enforcement capabilities over virtual currency financial activities. As with other agencies such as the SEC and CFTC, FinCEN desires to promote the financial innovation that can come with blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, while preventing criminals, hackers, sanctions evaders and hostile foreign actors.

STOCK RECOMMENDATIONS FROM SMM

Special Situations -Recommended by C. Dilley (SMM)

SHORT- Elio Motors, Inc. –ELIO Nov-2016  $11.80  June-15-18 price $4.40  (nice chance to add to short if you can get a borrow on ELIO)

SELL Tesla, Inc. –TSLA Sept-2017   $376.00 June 15-18  price $350.00

Short sale recommendation terminated. I am still extremely negative and not the least of that concerns the big push to self-driving cars.  

Latest charts show strength and the stock is on the rise again even if it makes no sense.

If not already- take profits and close out your position for now.
