Isn't that insider trading?

Nope....neither he nor I had any knowledge of the future awarding of contracts. He simply mentioned visiting this strange named company---out of curiosity I did some research on the company and decided to invest in it. I owned the stock for nearly a year before the contracts were awarded and the price of the stock moved upwards.

Unfortunately, I sold off the stock after about five years--making a nice return on my investment (nearly 400%). It was another 3-4 years before it really took off. If I had retained ownership, I would have made many times more than I did.
