Sherwin-Williams ([[SHW] +2.5%) says it's received an unsolicited, below-market mini-tender offer from TRC Capital to purchase up to 1M shares, approximately 0.97%, of its float, at $129.50 per share. The company recommends shareholders reject the offer. This isn't the first time TRC has tried to low-ball a bid for a company, it's made simlilar offers for Ford (F), Marathon Petroleum (MRO) and a number of other companies in what the SEC calls an attempt to "catch investors off guard."

    Why is this kind of fraud even legal? Why is TRC allowed to stay in business?

    They are trying to send stock down and then they are playing the short side.
