Ore. investment research president charged in NYC

Insider trading charges brought in NYC against Oregon investment research company president By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' The president of an Oregon investment research firm has been arrested on conspiracy and securities fraud charges in New York City.

John Kinnucan of Portland, Ore., was awaiting an initial court appearance Friday in Manhattan. He was arrested late Thursday.

The president of Broadband Research LLC is accused of obtaining secrets about publicly traded companies and selling the information to Broadband's clients.

Prosecutors say those clients included hedge funds and money managers.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara says Kinnucan used financial incentives, fancy meals and other inducements to curry favor with public company insiders.

Authorities say Kinnucan then obtained inside information about earnings reports between 2008 and 2010 and relayed the numbers to his clients.

It was not immediately clear who will represent Kinnucan in court.
