  1. The SEC is not trying to “limit who can give advice,” Ryan. The person giving the advice can be monetarily benefiting, especially if they own some of the things they are recommending. People say that disclaimer to make it clear to the SEC that they’re just talking and not giving real financial advice and any help or harm is incidental.

    That excuse may or may not fly if the SEC decided to prosecute someone for financial manipulation.
