Ex-SAC Analyst Identified 20 Inside Traders, U.S. Says

Wesley Wang, a former analyst for SAC Capital Advisors LP’s Sigma Capital unit, gave federal agents the names of about 20 people he said had traded on illegal inside information, some of whom are uncharged targets of the government’s investigation, U.S. prosecutors said.

Wang, 39, who worked as a semiconductor analyst at Sigma Capital from 2002 to 2005, pleaded guilty last year to passing illegal tips to former Sigma Capital portfolio manager Dipak Patel and to Whitman Capital LLC hedge fund founder Doug Whitman.
