Market Reports Cite Suspicious Trends in Option Pricing

Various market analyst reports on Friday cited suspicious trends in the pricing of stock options for company executives at certain firms in the networking sector. The suspicious activity is based on option grant dates that consistently occur at the stock's monthly low, indicating that perhaps the options were back-dated so as to provide the maximum value to the grantee.

Companies cited on Friday included F5 Networks, Juniper Networks and SafeNet.
