Wikipedia: Insider trading
Insider trading is the trading of a public company’s stock or other securities (such as bonds or stock options) based on material, nonpublic information about the company. In various countries, some kinds of trading based on insider information is illegal. This is because it is seen as unfair to other investors who do not have access to the information, as the investor with insider information could potentially make larger profits than a typical investor could make. The rules governing insider trading are complex and vary significantly from country to country. The extent of enforcement also varies from one country to another. The definition of insider in one jurisdiction can be broad, and may cover not only insiders themselves but also any persons related to them, such as brokers, associates, and even family members. A person who becomes aware of non-public information and trades on that basis may be guilty of a crime.

Martha Stewart just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. Federal investigators looking through her kitchen came across an entire storeroom full of MacIntoshes. When questioned about this cache she’d stashed, she was hard pressed to give a logical answer. Now she’s being charged with what? In-cider trading (Gary Hallock)

My father’s last financial advice to me was:
“Buy a bunch of Apple stock.”
Is it considered in cider trading? A juicy tale for sure…
I misunderstood him, so I bought an orchard by accident. #iBad
