*”Inside information” is material, nonpublic information about the securities, activities, or financial condition of a corporation, public entity, or other issuer securities. Material nonpublic information concerning market developments may also be constructed to be inside information.

Information may be material to one issuer but not to another, or to certain securities of an issuer but not to all securities of that issuer, (e.g., to equity, but not to debt).
