Probably. Thats big time conflict of interest. You simply cannot have that some of insider information especially in public corporations but any business really and that could be constituted as insider trading becuase you have information that maybe no one or very few people have and would most likely violate a lot of IRS rules. please check with an accountant and a lawyer for a fully conclusive and fully knowledgeable answer.
