Ethics about rumors

Hi there, can someone explain this to me, please? How could an analyst appropriately use rumored information to make recommendations? Cheers, Angie

The question is about the use of material non-public information. Because the information sourced from a blog (probably to assist in guaging sentiment) is potentially public “material” information which it’s not an issue. Just think mosaic theory

Oh right, I should have read the prompt more carefully.

Cheers! Angie
