And the great Mary Schapiro went into labor and from the sandy vagina sprang forth cash for clunckers and behold the masses looked upon the offering and said. It is good.
Can you get an overlay of Toll's appearances on Mad Money to put on top of that selling chart? Seems to be his MO, go on with jimmy-boy to pump and then the dump.
A ZH regular pump/dump chart index feature as JK suggests would be highly informative.Good idea with the CNBC appearances. Of course, I would like the charts since I am a person who needs pictures...
Billie Gates sure is going balls out on the stops... With all the profit taking, hopefully Billie can afford something other than a chili bowl for his haircuts...
JIM: Boo-yah, Cramer speaking
CEO: Jimmy I need to dump some shares
JIM: When can you come on the show?
CEO: The sooner the better
JIM: See ya tomorrow! boo-yah!
Zero Hedge CNBC Cramer-- CEO Dump Chart of the Week
Chart provided without comment for your pleasure...
Mr. Toll just wants to "diversify" his holdings and also do a little "estate planning". Otherwise, he would be backing up the truck for Toll stock.
considering most of his trucks are idle at this moment, i am sure he can find one to load up...:)
TD, RE: the recent rhetoric and subsequent actions by those individuals mentioned in your post.
Where I'm from we call that, "talking out of your ass".
The Gates' selling looks like a big red army trying to stamp a hill flat
Goldbugs tryin to keep their fires put out. Rome is burning.
I'd like to know how much Mike Jackson unloaded during and post Cash-for-clunkers. His begging (on TV) for tax dollars is difficult to stomach...
No one ever sold a stock because he thought it was going up.
"...I never buy at the bottom, and I always sell too soon..."
REQ: Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com (CRM). Looking at yahoo, he was quiet for a couple months this fall, but before that he sold stock almost every day for years.
Fantastic one - last I checked that guy was unloading something like the better half of a million dollars worth EACH WEEK.
I wonder what these insider's are doing with proceeds?
Buying Gold perhaps?
What is going on the dollar?all of sudden the dollar is popping but no response from equities,only gold and oil!!!
Somebodies paying a bill but doesn't have to sell gold oil or equities to pay it.
I'd like to see what CARMAX was doing in relation to CFC.
Hey don't Bill and Warren donate a lot to Bill's foundation/charity? Let's be fair here...
Why be fair? Assume the worst, post it and move on to the next story.
Buffett has never sold a share of Berkshire Hathaway. He converts A shares to B shares and gifts B shares on a regular basis to the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation sells shares on a regular basis to diversify and to fund its current operations and charitable grants. I believe Buffett made it a requirement that some percentage of his gifts have to be spent each year because he doesn't believe in charities piling up money forever and creating bureacracies. Bill Gates is a Berkshire director who has bought quite a bit of stock personally (maybe a few hundred million $ worth, not a huge part of his net worth) but I don't think he's ever sold a share personally either.
Well too late I changed my mind. Let's pitchfork them!
Oh I see. Buffet gifts these to gates foundtion by "selling" them to it. Then the gates foundation sells them to open market and then everybody says what the hell is going on cause this crap is showing up on a bloomberg terminal.
After all, it's not like the Gates Foundation is disbursing funds across the globe into all sorts of ventures.
In our next shocking report, when I write a check, my account balance decreases!
Damn my avatar is worth alot of money
Cohen & Steers - CNS
... scratch that... they sold through a private placement.
I know what you're trying to do.
You're trying to ruin my Christmas rally.
It's not going to work. I'm going to get my rally and we're going to get a Christmas retail sales shocker! Bob and Bill are using their stock sale proceeds and going shopping.
They are trying to cover for losses on mortgages (for McMansions) with sales proceeds ?
Favorite CEO? The ultimate oxy-moron.
VPRT is the best, one insider buy AT the low and an incredible amount of selling.
Seems like Billy boy is trying to get rid of his MSFT holding pretty fast over there. Hmmm...
Not everything is a conspiracy--Gates (unlike Toll and the salesforce guy, who are dumping stock to idiot buyers) is selling to fund his foundation and the charity work. Moreover, he sells a huge amount (like $50 m) about every week, and has for a long time. This isn't a recent development
GG - Gates is selling BRK/B, not MSFT. He's selling donated stock from Buffett to his foundation.
Thanks for pointing that out. I'll go take my meds now...
To be fair, Buffett gives Gates Foundation a certain donation of shares (at a regular interval) every quarter. Gates Foundation sells the BRK/B shares to raise cash for their foundation efforts. Seems pretty simple to me.
Gekko - Gates is selling BRK/B on the chart, not MSFT.
"Why be fair? Assume the worst, post it and move on to the next story."
If it looks like a duck and it quacks like a duck....
Buffett has been quacking like a duck for over a year now.."stimulus good, quack quack"...."bailouts good, quack quack"..."mark to fantasy good, quack quack"...."the public didn't pay for the bailouts China did, quack quack"
Yea Ill assume the worse and move on......
dear tyler(s), thanks for sharing the squid sales.is there an easy way to determine volume on those 4Q09 sales?inquiring minds would love to know
Yeah, Gates has sold 2 or 3 million shares of MSFT pretty much every couple of days for years. It's all detailed in MSFT's insider transactions.
