Just before 9/11, there was an “extraordinary” amount of put-options placed on United Airlines and American Airlines stocks, earning their investors well over $5 million. It was reported for years that these earnings remained “uncollected” and the names of these investors and any results of an investigation into these entities – if any – has never been made public.
However, the names of other companies whose activity showed spikes for the kinds of trades where they would profit from losses created by the WTC attacks (a.k.a. “put-options”) are publicly known, including: Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, Bear Stearns, Fidelity Investments and TD Waterhouse, Raytheon, Boeing and Lockheed Martin, the parent companies of American, Continental, Delta, Northwest, Southwest, United and U.S. Airways, as well as Carnival and Royal Caribbean cruise lines. The insurance companies, AIG, Axa, Chubb, Cigna, CNA Financial, John Hancock and MetLife were also involved. Several giant companies that were former tenants in the WTC also showed irregular trading: Morgan Stanley; Lehman Brothers; Bank of America; and the financial firm Marsh & McLennan. Other major companies included General Motors, LTV, WR Grace, Lone Star Technologies, American Express, Bank of New York, Bank One.
An investigation reported in the Journal of Business concluded there was “Evidence of unusual option market activity in the days leading up to September 11 that is consistent with investors trading on advance knowledge of the attacks.”
