Head of Apple's insider trading program charged with… you guessed it... insider trading

Why would you do this?

The guy had $10 million in stock to sell, and he sold it to avoid a paltry 3.5% loss? Given a choice between being very rich, and risking spending time in jail to be ever so slightly more rich, I would prefer the former!

Nevermind that if he'd held onto that $10 million in stock it would be worth more today even after Apple's recent drop.
