The One Chart That America's Corporate Elite Don't Want You To See

Tyler Durden's picture

The message from America's ruling elite is, as always - "do as I say, not as I do" - and nowhere is that more evident in the following chart. Simply put, follow the money!

As we detailed last week, as US financial stocks have soared in the post-election Trumphoria, so bankers have been dumping over $100 million in personal stock holdings...


But, as Barron's details, it's not just the bankers that are bailing out of US stocks (just as the corporate elite and their mainstream media lackeys cajole you and your hard-earned retirement funds back into the most-expensive market ever), it's everyone!!


The massive spike in insider-selling (relative to buying) is broad-based...


Still - listen to CNBC, buy some more NFLX or TSLA or the latest Biotech stock, we have reached a new permanantly high plateau...

I hate when I see some of my stocks on ZH lists

MisterMousePotato's picture

I recall that articles detailing stock purchases and sales by corporate insiders used to be a recurrent feature on ZeroHedge. Haven't seen 'em much in the last year or two. Maybe longer?

Also, what about them holiday sales? Starting to think Johnny might've put his report card in the freezer.

I don't see any gold stocks on any of those lists. Just saying.

Considering that the West has been pounded by the most insane winter ever I can't imagine that sales were very special this year, but it is clear none of these reports matter at all now.  Trumpy headlines and emotion are all they use to justify the hedge fund algorithm trigger buys made by central banks.  If it looks like a down day at all then the CBs buy until the triggers are hit and boom it goes up day after day.  It's a recursive nightmare.  It's like a Far Side cartoon.  Some fool gave the Central Banks Microsoft Excel spreadsheets linked directly to the database.  They just move the money limit up and everything fixes itself.  It's just that easy .... until all the intrinsic societal value they are using to fuel this thing is gone.  That's the level of destruction here.

Are you paid per post or are you desperate for attention?

Have you any thoughts/opinions of your own?

This is the second time he has posted this article too. He must own the dialy douchbagger web site or something.

Do not click his links, that site will crash your computer.

Jack's Raging Bile Duct's picture

Correct. He's trying to ride ZH's coattails with spam links to his rag. He can take his rag and do something useful, like wipe his ass with it.

Down in real value yes, I agree. Down numerically, not necessarily, said the printer in chief. My friend Silver says Karma's a bitch.

Love this.


Only one analyst has a proven track record in stocks, oil and gold.

And  proves market calls by showing past time stamped charts.


Fuck you, Assinhoney, and the Shepwave you rode in on. 

Pay for your fucking ads, you cheap ass web pimp.

You just keep saying "can make this shit up" but you never explain exactly what ur doin, ur charts lag, and you never make a call, long or short, just speak of levels, and double breaks of the line.  Leaves a whole lot to be desired, even for one who knows! to a newbe ur just BS from left field I bet?

Yes, the market is overpriced now, and the smallest (real) event should correct this.  I am kinda hoping it's the combination of EPA gagging and an Ebola outbreak.  j/k

Central bank redistribution of wealth at work. Buy and prop up stocks, which are sold by insiders at higher and higher prices.

I think this is called the Enron position - get out before the ship sinks!  But make sure you tell all the dummies that everything is just problems!!!

Tom Green Swedish's picture

Of course. They always want the stock top go higher.

Most uppe managment types can only trade stocks in their own companies for 4 months months the year. It is window 1 m after earnings and 1 month before earnings. You wanna see selling? Wait till February when the window opens after money is on the largest FLUSH sound the world has ever heard.


I've been out of the market since 2012 so am just watching.


The shit is happening fast these days.

Agreed. I got out, even sold all of my silver very early 2013. Too much manipulation--too little to make sense of. I'm considering dumping my stack again within the next few days--I think it's going to get hit hard over tax season. I meant to do it over a week ago. That's just superstition though, not grounded in anything rational. I intend to BTFD around then too. After that, I think Ag's long-term outlook is good--particularly if any Mexico threats are made good on.

SillySalesmanQuestion's picture

How much of this insider selling was done after repurchasing of shares, to drive the price up...?
Wash, rinse, repeat.

All,  but non gaap and full nonsense.

When it fails don't forget it was the blame of that crooked cunt Stephen Mnuchin.
