Even so, major corporations experience ups and downs in their stock prices, and a lawyer formerly employed by Apple now stands accused of allegedly selling company stock before earnings announcements that influenced the stock's price. The Securities and Exchange Commission has filed a lawsuit claiming that the man engaged in insider trading, and a U.S. attorney has prepared criminal charges against him. He lost his position at Apple in September 2018.
