The son of a pharmaceutical company director who provided secret information to a participant in a global insider-trading network should be sentenced to more than 18 months in prison, U.S. prosecutors told a judge in New York.

Telemaque Lavidas was convicted in January of leaking corporate secrets he got from his father, a director of Ariad Pharmaceuticals Inc. Lavidas is set to be sentenced June 25.

“Lavidas is a sophisticated businessman who well understood the duties and responsibilities to keep confidential corporate information,” prosecutors said in a court filing Tuesday. “Despite a stellar education, his family’s extraordinary wealth, and all the advantages he was given in life, the defendant chose to engage in criminal conduct multiple times over a three-year period.”

Lavidas was the first U.S. defendant tried in connection with an international insider-trading ring that generated tens of millions of dollars on illegal tips about drug companies from investment bankers and corporate insiders.

He was convicted of passing inside information about Ariad to George Nikas, a friend who owned a chain of Greek restaurants in New York. Nikas is charged with insider trading and is believed to be in Greece.

Prosecutors told U.S. District Judge Denise Cote that Lavidas should get less than 6 1/2 years, the maximum called for under federal sentencing guidelines, but “substantially in excess” of the 18 months recommended by U.S. probation authorities. Lavidas has been held in a New York jail since his arrest in October.

Lavidas last week asked Cote to sentence him to no more than the eight months he’s already spent behind bars. His lawyer, Jonathan Streeter, pointed to the sentence of home detention imposed on former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker Bryan Cohen, who pleaded guilty in a related insider trading scheme. In Cohen’s case, prosecutors had sought a three-year sentence.

Streeter didn’t respond to an email seeking comment on the government’s sentencing recommendation.

The case is U.S. v. Lavidas, 19-cr-00716, U.S. District Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).

Institutional investors are bidding for JD.com’s Hong Kong shares before this week’s debut at slightly more than the listing price.

Some institutional investors have bid to buy the Chinese e-commerce company’s shares at between HK$226.10 to HK$237 apiece in gray market trading Wednesday, according to people familiar with the matter. That represents a premium of as much as 4.9% compared to the listing price of HK$226. Brokers quoted offers to sell the shares at between HK$239 and HK$245 each, the people said.

JD.com, which went public on Nasdaq in 2014, is expected to start trading in Hong Kong on June 18. The stock rose 2.5% in U.S. trading on Tuesday. Traders will be able to short the stock immediately after its debut, as well as hedge with futures and options, according to the Hong Kong exchange operator.

JD.com raised $3.9 billion last week selling 133 million new shares in Hong Kong in the second-biggest listing of the year, part of a wave of Chinese companies that are fleeing the U.S. and seeking secondary listings in the city.

Last week, internet gaming company NetEase Inc. began trading in the city, with the Hong Kong-listed shares now up 4.1% from the offer price after an initial pop on its first day of trading. Prior to listing, it also drew a small premium on the gray market.

Investors in the stock market are facing a summer of C.R.A.P.

Investors in the stock market are facing a summer of C.R.A.P.

A summer of steaming hot stinky markets — created by a concoction of heightened volatility fueled by fears of a second wave of COVID-19 and election season jitters — looks all but inevitable says one market veteran.

“The trading desks right now are talking about corona recovery, alienation and protest, — C.R.A.P., that’s what traders say,” explained Sanders Morris Harris CEO George Ball on Yahoo Finance’s The First Trade. To Ball — who has decades of experience in the markets — a C.R.A.P. stock market is one prone to a noticeable correction this summer.

Ball is most concerned about the looming fiscal cliff that are Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

The government passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to cushion the blow from the COVID-19 pandemic in late March. As part of the scheme, $350 billion was dedicated to forgivable loans for businesses to prevent layoffs and business closures. Companies with 500 or fewer employees were able to receive up to eight weeks of financial assistance.

But with that cash flow largely being eaten up by businesses large and small still dealing with a bruising recession, investing experts like Ball think a fresh round of layoffs is looming.

That could have negative ramifications for a stock market still riding high on the better than expected May employment report and the specter of more improvement in June, July and August.

WASHINGTON, DC – APRIL 24: U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a signing ceremony for H.R.266, the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act, with members of his administration and Republican lawmakers in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington DC on April 24th, 2020. The bill includes an additional $321 billion for the Paycheck Protection Programs forgivable loans to cover payroll and other costs for small businesses. Hospitals and other health care providers will receive $75 billion and another $25 billion is allocated for COVID-19 testing. (Photo by Anna Moneymaker/The New York Times/POOL/Getty Images)

“I think the next big market mover is going to be the realization that the PPP program actually had an enormous impact. It worked. It kept the patient alive. But the half-life of the forgivable loans to small businesses comes up pretty soon, comes up mid-July to August. That may well mean there will a round of layoffs of people who were kept on the job or not furloughed because of the PPP program who are laid off when it comes to an end. So I think the next signals have to be a worrisome one rather than a positive one,” Ball added.

The wildcard to Ball’s summer correction thesis is whether Congress passes a $1 trillion infrastructure plan as recently floated by the Trump administration. Or, pass a new stimulus plan along the lines of a $3 trillion scheme proposed recently by Democrats.

Until that gets decided one way or another, C.R.A.P. may be the newest most applicable investing acronym around.
