NEW YORK OP) - R e c e n t
government moves against the
misuse for profit of corporate
inside information indicates the
government is getting awfullyf
tough to work with or that things
are really bad in Wall Street. It
could be both.
Inside information, broadly
speaking, is private knowledge of
corporate affairs that s h o u 1d
be public knowledge. Generally
it is information which enables a
trader to buy or sell in advance of
a major change in stock prices.
The classic case involves Texas
Gulf Sulphur Co. Knowledge of
a big metal ore strike in Ontario,
the Securities and Exchange Com-
mission claims, enabled corporate
officials and friends to make a
stock market killing a few years
ago.
But there have been other less
publicized charges against insiders
and there is little doubt that what
reaches the surface is only a part
of the picture.
The use of inside information
is not an uncommon practice in:
the securities business. In fact,
such information is the goal of
securities analysts and the man-1

agers of today's big mutual funds,
among others.
In fact, there is a stock market
theory that the little guy is al-
ways wrong - that the time for
the professionals to sell is when
the little guy is getting worked
up about buying - that might be
at least partially based in how ill-
informed or belatedly informed
the little guy is.'
Now the rules are changing, and
the SEC is shouting it out: Cor-
porate information that involves
the fortunes of publicly held com-
panies should be made available
to all shareholders, not to a priv-
ileged few.
The SEC maintains that Merril
Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith,
D. New York brokerage firm, ob-
tained information through a
privileged position with Douglas
Aircraft Co. that the firm's earn-
ings were going to be less than
had been forecast.
The brokerage house, the SEC
said, passed on this information
to some of its biggest customers
and enabled them to sell before
the knowledge became wide-
spread. In (addition, it continued
to accept orders for the stock

from other customers, the SEC
said. Merrill Lynch says it is inns.
cent of the charges.
Should these charges be proved
by the SEC in a highly publicized
case the result could be shattering
to the confidence of the nation's
24 million investors. But benefits
could accrue also If privilege is
eliminated.
Merrill Lynch isn't just another
broker. It is everyone's firm'i and
its 1.1 million customers may be
found almost everywhere. Its in-
fluence is widespread; its repu-
tation shines; its name, in fact, is
a household word.
It is regarded equally high1f
in. the execu'tive su'ite, for Mer-
rill Lynch recommendations about
a stock's value, and its ability to
sell the shares of corporations, has
helped build some of America's in-
dustrial giants. So. large and pow-
erful is it that it has been called
"The Thundering Herd."
The New York Stock Exchange
Guide lists 172 officers for the
firm, not just in large cities
throughout the country but in
some suburbs as well; not just in
the United States but in cities
such as Cannes, France and,
Tokyo.
The case is bound to raise
doubts about the habits and
methods of brokers, for Merrill
Lynch has long held a very spec-
ial position in the investment
world. It has a reputation for en-
couraging and instructing small,
investors.
The SEC accusations strike
directly at this relationship,
claiming that Merrill Lynch per-
mitted large institutions to trade
on inside information while
withholding it from the rank and
file.
This most recent case by the
SEC also brings up questions re-
garding the size, power and influ-
ence of institutions such as bil-
lion-dollar mutual funds.
In the performance game,
which requires that a fund: always
try to show at any onetime bet-
ter percentage gains than its
neighbor, the quest for.informa-
tion, perhaps even inside Informa-
tion, is part of the battle.
It brings up the question also
of the close association of corpo-
rate executives and large pur-
chasers of the firm's ,stock. In
this day of acquisitions it is ne-
cessary to keep high the price of
shares, and one way to do this
is to court the big funds.
What is it that the corporate
executives tell the funds that the
funds shouldn't already know
through the regular public in-A
formation channels?
