Rochdale Securities Reportedly Seeking Capital

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Rochdale Securities may be the latest brokerage firm to need an injection of capital after unauthorized trading activity.

According to a Bloomberg report citing three unnamed sources, executives at Rochdale Securities - which employs the well-known bank analyst Richard Bove -- have been telling employees and potential investors that the company's capital has been "eroded" because of an unauthorized trade in Apple ( APPL) shares.

A Rochdale spokesman declined to comment.

According to the company's website, Rochdale Securities specializes in "high-quality executions, comprehensive reporting and the ability to provide independent research to the institutional investment community," and that it "offers independent research without the conflicts of investment banking."
