SEC

Stands for the Securities and Exchange Commission. It is a federal government organization that is supposed to be the good guy. Their sole purpose is to “protect investors” from the bad guys (like shady brokers or fraudulent trading schemes). They put in regulations for “securities” markets or anything stock related. Investors feel like the SEC has their back while companies often think they are a thorn in their side.
