Ex-Primary Global Analyst Pleads Guilty in U.S. Probe

Bob Nguyen, a former analyst for expert-networking firm Primary Global Research LLC, pleaded guilty today in Manhattan federal court in the latest case brought as part of a nationwide U.S. insider-trading probe.

Nguyen, 32, of Stockton, California, admitted he was part of a scheme at his firm to provide hedge fund clients with material, non-public information. Nguyen, whose cooperation may help prosecutors convict other defendants, is the latest person tied to Primary Global to be implicated in the U.S. insider-trading probe.
