I called the Securities & Exchange Commission. What they told me was SHOCKING !

I wanted to know if a purchase of a stock i wanted to make would violate insider trading laws. more than a month ago I met with a company who wanted to invest in one of my portfolio companies. We never discussed their business. Only ours. But I liked the company. The next week their stock fell significantly after their earnings report. It was now at a price I wanted to buy it.The only non public information i have is that they have an interest in one of my companies. Would it be insider trading if i bought the stock ? I called the SEC to see if I could get this question answered. What I found shocked even me.
