Takeaway: Below is a chart of JPMorgan's stock price showing the interesting proximity of Dimon's purchase and JPM's buyback announcement.

Remember the "Dimon Bottom?"

On February 11, it was widely announced that JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon snapped up 500,000 of his company's beaten-up shares. The stock moved sharply higher on the news. Last week (just five weeks later) JPMorgan said it would boost its stock buyback authorization by $1.88 billion. (Note: On Feb 11, JPM stock is at $53. Today? $60.) 

Do we sniff a massive conflict of interest?

We'll let you be the judge. Here is the year-to-date chart of JPM's stock:
