Authorities reportedly widen their probe into possible insider trading by corporate executives following a WSJ expose last month. The Manhattan U.S. attorney's office is carrying out a criminal investigation into seven execs, including Mohawk Industries (MHK) CEO Jeffrey Lorberbaum. The SEC is scrutinizing the trades of VeriFone Systems (PAY) CEO Douglas Bergeron, adding to its probe of Big Lots boss Steven Fishman.
