Reddit Stocks

15/09/2021 - 03:39

https://m.benzinga.com/article/22931567 Sergey Brin, Director at Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG), made a large insider sell on September 9, according to a new SEC filing. What Happened: A Form 4 filing from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday showed that Brin sold 13,889 shares of Alphabet at a price of $2901.68 per share. The total transaction amounted to $40,307,198. Following the transaction, Brin still owns 18,993,601 shares of the company, worth $54,689,794,847. Alphabet shares are trading up 0.35% at $2879.38 at the time of this writing on Tuesday morning. I know the article explains why insider trading is important, but since most of my portfolio is GOOGL right now I just wanted to see what you guys think of this.   submitted by   /u/Crouching-Tigers [link]   [comments]

  1. Huge Amounts of Insider Selling the Past Few Weeks - Analysis and Insider Activity Attached (27/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi, so this is an observation that I wanted to share with the community here because it's quite alarming to see this. I have been tracking insider trades for a few weeks now and there are barely any days when I see large amounts of insider buying. Every single day, insiders keep selling their shares without almost any buying activity. That's just alarming to me. I am not predicting a crash or anything, just trying to share what I've observed. Here are some trades from the last few days. This is a long list from last week and you can see how infrequent insider buys are here. Insider Activity ????

  3. Do most public companies acquire other companies? (13/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I was looking up GOOGL stock on Google finance and see all these companies listed the Alphabet owns. For example, they own Google, Verily, Calico, DeepMind, Waymo, etc. So when we're buying GOOGL stock its really Alphabet right? Why does everyone refer to it as GOOGL stock? Isn't Google just one company that Alphabet owns? Is Alphabet considered a holding company? So most of the Fang companies are really fortress type companies that own many other companies? I would assume that this is what all the anti trust stuff is all about? How many companies does Alphabet own? What about MSFT? So right now these companies are powerhouses! Wow!   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  4. How seriously should we consider insider trading? (01/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Good morning all, As part of DD, I usually take a look at the insider buys and sells of a company. Usually, if I see quite a few buys and not a lot of insider trading in general, I take it as a bit of confirmation on top of my initial research. My question is, how deeply should we consider these insider trades? If we see someone like a company director selling off a few shares, should we consider it a bad thing? Of course, many sell off perhaps because they need money here and there (for eg, Jeff Bezos with Amazon a few months back), but at what stage does the insider activity become a negative indicator of the company?   submitted by   /u/maximalsimplicity [link]   [comments]

  5. Insider sales as an indication (11/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello, I'm not an experienced investor and one of the things i've been looking at while considering a stock is the insider sales. It seems that almost every stock I looked at has significant amount of insider sales. I agree that I'm looking at a high point in the market but is it a red flag when a company has had only stock sales from insiders in the last 3-6 months? My source for data is Finviz.com.

  6. Stocks with high insider ownership are some of my favorite (01/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Insider Ownership is calculated as the total number of shares owned by insiders (shareholders who own more than 5% of the corporation or an officer or director of the company) divided by the total Shares Outstanding. A high value of insider ownership means that those working for the company have a large stake in the success of the company. This is sometimes seen as a sign that those running the company will work hard to ensure its success or believe the company's stock price will rise. Overall, if there is insider buying, it could be a bullish sign for a company’s stock. There is only one reason why an insider would buy their stock. They believe that it is undervalued and that the price of the shares will rise. I took a look at my own stocks and found that many of my favorite had insider ownership well over 10% OTC: KAVL (72%) + BRLL (57%) + PONGF (29%) + BNXAF (16%) + KROEF (16%) + SXOOF (15%) + SLGBF (14%) + CWSFF (12.5%) + BTZI (11%) + NPPTF (11%) + ABML (10%) NON-OTC: CURI (52%) + FLNT (43%) + USIO (37%) + TAPM (32%) + HIMX (22%) + ZDGE (16%) + PERI (15%) + RSI (11%) + A few others I found from mid-caps to very large companies. BSRR (10%) + BRO (17%) + CHMG (29%) + SRGA (12%) ROL (57%) + HRL (47%) + ORCL (40%) + NWS (40%) + FOX (40%) + URBN (39%) + MS (20%) + UA (17%) + MET (15%) + CYTH (3%) +   submitted by   /u/NPRjunkieDC [link]   [comments]

  8. Is it legal for a company to consider EVERY employee an “insider” and blackout trading ? (15/07/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I do grunt work, I’m basically customer service provider for the company I work for and just find it odd how in the middle of the month they give us for trading the company will be releasing earnings report. I don’t have access to any non public information in my position but I would like to trade outside the window due to my trend analysis leading me to believe I can swing the stock up and down it’s fluctuations. That trading is fueled not at all by the fact I work for the company, hell it could be any other company with those numbers and I’d trade it… is this legal? I believe the people who are in charge do not fully understand what insider trading is and are going the lazy route to just blanket rule everyone as a “insider”   submitted by   /u/2woth [link]   [comments]

    I've noticed this guy named Paul Robert has done over 5 sales of shares that absolutely destroy the stock price. Oddly his total ownership remains unchanged after these sales according to OpenInsider My first thought is that he is selling at a high and then using insider options to buy back his shares at an extreme discount. Whats going on here exactly? Also shouldn't a company insider be building up his stake in the company if Alector plans to release good data in the second half of this year?

  11. Local bank "green fund" investing in Alphabet – is Alphabet really a green company? (18/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi, I work in advertising in CE region and one of our clients, a big bank, has green sector funds – stocks and bonds of environmental friendly companies, green energy etc., you know it. I just noticed that Alphabet stocks are one of those assets there. Is Alphabet considered a green company? Google seems just like a good example of greenwashing – although they seem very ecofriendly, they also work with oil companies etc. and are simply not branded as an eco company. They also have Microsoft and 3M in, of whom eco acitvities I know nothing about – could you consider those as green or is the fund just a marketing lie?   submitted by   /u/jachcemmatnickspace [link]   [comments]

  12. Can the stock market be manipulated by massive sales of the CEO's shares? (01/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I have a question about the stock market. If a CEO of a large international company on the day they launch a new successful product sells over 50% of their shares. Is it a sign of distrust of the product, or could it be a form of stock market manipulation? Especially if other top managers in the company do the same. If so, how can the stock market be manipulated? Reference to the questions: Financial times: Why the Pfizer CEO selling 62% of his stock the same day as the vaccine announcement looks bad. NPR : 'Bad Optics' Or Something More? Moderna Executives' Stock Sales Raise Concerns. Business insider: CEO cashed out 60% of his stock on the same day the company unveiled the results of its COVID-19 vaccine trial. I'm also interested in a any source that top executives in vaccine manufacturer Johnson and Johnson and Astro zeneca have also sold a lot of shares.   submitted by   /u/thethruthseeker [link]   [comments]

    Hi all Seeking help as I’m not sure what to do. I’m invested in Graphite One GPH.V and I suspect there is insider trading going on. I don’t know how / if the regulators would help. The company just announced a private placement that valued the stock at $1 today June 30th. Thing is the price had been stable around $1.30 for months and suddenly it dropped to $1 over the past two days before the news went public. Putting aside that I’m over invested in a tiny jr mining company. It really upsets me that this can happen so blatantly and nothing is done.

  15. Buyout / Authorized Shares Question (15/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    In a buyout scenario, a company has authorized 50 million shares, but only 5 million are outstanding. Previously, 10 million shares were sold to a private company for majority control but those 10 million were never registered and there are still only 5 million outstanding to trade. If the majority company wanted to complete the buy out, what would happen to the other 35 million shares that were authorized, but never issued? Would members of the public who hold the 5 million outstanding shares have their shares diluted in a buyout scenario? Secondly, when calculating market cap prior to the buyout scenario, is it proper to include the 10 million shares that were sold for majority ownership but never registered? Since they were never outstanding I wouldn't think so but I'm interested in that as well. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!   submitted by   /u/tableturned [link]   [comments]

  16. Top 5 companies by insider trading activity over the past month (24/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    The point is that senior employees of public companies are required to make their transactions public. It seems to me that this is an important market indicator - if the CEO of a large company sells most of his stock or buys more, this indirectly determines the company's performance and the mood of employees. Of course, insider trading based on non-public information is illegal. However, when the company's employees buy or sell its shares in large quantities, it is completely legal and an important indicator of its affairs. I’ve been collecting information from Nasdaq and other official sources. Then I aggregated it by months and got two lists as a result - the first is the top 5 companies by insider buying activity and the second is top 5 by insider selling activity. So, top 5 companies by insider buying activity for the last month: 1. $ATSG (Air Transport Services Group) $ATSG 2. $PZZA (Papa John's International Inc.) $PZZA 3. $EXPI (eXp World Holdings Inc.) $EXPI 4. $PFSI (PennyMac Financial Services Inc.) $PFSI 5. $ALDX (Aldeyra Therapeutics Inc.) $ALDX I will post the second list with the top 5 companies by insider selling activity later in a separate post, if you like this topic. I entrust the analysis of the reasons for such peaks in insider activity to commentators - some are quite obvious, others are not. Your thoughts?   submitted by   /u/vilnitskiy [link]   [comments]

    Just wondering the legality of this scenario. If an employee were to be fired from a publicly traded company and was told it was due to them getting ready to sell the company before that became public knowledge/declared to shareholders - would that constitute insider trading or fall under any illegal umbrella? With my understanding, the fired employee would be in an advantageous position to buy more stock ahead of a sale and that’s got to be illegal correct?   submitted by   /u/azorreborn [link]   [comments]

  20. RXST - Rxsight - Insider Trading (06/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I Was looking through open insider and found that RXST - Rxsight, Inc has some rather large purchases from insiders. After looking at Robinhood the stock has fallen 19.75% in the past week and 22.02% in the past month from an IPO of $17.50. 7 different insiders have purchased shares ranging from $250,000k to - $10.2 million worth The filing date for these was yesterday August 5th and at the time of writing this, the stock sits at $13.61 Its market cap is not large at 350 million so this could definitely be a pump and dump move by these insiders Options are not available on Robinhood so I Just bought some shares of it as I think it could be a decent play. Some info about the company RxSight is a privately-held corporation headquartered in California that has commercialized the world’s first and only adjustable intraocular lens (IOL) that is customized after cataract surgery. The company’s mission is to revolutionize the premium cataract surgery experience by allowing surgeons to partner with their patients to achieve optimized results for every unique eye.

  21. Goldman Sachs bought into the meteoric rise of a Danish biotech stock that became a meme last week - then sold (23/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Goldman Sachs bought into the meteoric rise of a Danish biotech stock that became a meme last week - then sold | Markets Insider (businessinsider.com) Natasha Dailey Jun. 23, 2021, 01:30 PM Goldman Sachs bought a 5.58% stake in a tiny Danish biotech firm that became a meme stock. It dropped below the 5% threshold the next day when the stock dropped from its meteoric rise. The Danish firm Orphazyme has been on a wild ride since June 10 when it rose 1,387% in a day. Goldman Sachs bought - then sold - a noteworthy stake in a tiny Danish biotech firm that became a meme stock last week. Orphazyme, a Copenhagen, Denmark-based biotech firm, said the bank's holdings increased to 5.58% of the company's shares as of June 16. Then, just a day later, the bank's stake fell below the 5% threshold that triggers a filing. Orphazyme's American Depository Shares rallied 61% on June 16 and then fell the following three days. The bank didn't respond to Insider's request for comment on the matter. The stock has been on a wild ride since June 10 when it surged as much as 1,387% in a single trading day. The company rose to popularity on Reddit's Wall Street Bets that day, though some retail traders questioned if the trade was a hedge-fund pump-and-dump. In a statement about the share surge, the company said it wasn't aware of any material changes to the business that would explain the stock move and warned investors they could lose money if the price dropped. The price of the company's American Depository Shares has surged then plummeted twice this month. Wednesday, the price was on the rise again, gaining as much as 53%. The company, founded in Denmark in 2009, is researching and developing heat-shock proteins to treat people living with rare neurodegenerative diseases, according to its website. It went public in 2017. Orphazyme did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment. Orphazyme isn't the only small firm to be added to the meme-stock basket recently. This week, another small biotech firm, Atossa Therapeutics, saw a huge rally when retail traders poured into the stock, while a tiny Texas oil driller that's previously warned it could go out of business also surged. The meme-stock frenzy began earlier this year when investors mobilized on social media like Reddit caused GameStop's share price to soar. Since then, many other stocks have been pulled into the frenzy.   submitted by   /u/SavannahSmiles_ [link]   [comments]

Co-founders Vlad Tenev and Baiju Bhatt each sold about $50 million worth of stock. The company was last valued in the private markets at $11.7 billion in September.

  26. Chng: Short Sales / Borrowed Stock (11/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Can someone explain to me how dividends get paid to stock that has been loaned / borrowed? Does the lender forfeit the dividend? What about so-called “synthetic”stocks, where borrowed stock has been sold to a legitimate buyer, and loaned out a second time and sold to another legitimate buyer. Surely the legitimate buyers are entitled to the dividend, but the company is only going to pay one dividend for each real share. Also, what happens if a company is sold and the short sellers can’t buy the stock to close their open positions, the purchaser is only going to pay for real shares, not the shares sold short or the “synthetic” shares, but the people who bought those shares are owed the proceeds of the sale, and the lenders are going to want their proceeds too.   submitted by   /u/Significant-Elk-4625 [link]   [comments]

  28. Meaning of "38 - Redemption, retraction, cancellation, repurchase"? (05/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hi, I am researching the recent insiders' trading of a Canadian company listed on TSX using the Canadian Insider website. Not being a finance/accounting person, I do not understand some of the terminology used and how to interpret some of the figures presented. So for the stock I am looking at, there are the following entries for the director of the company recently: ​ https://preview.redd.it/7t5xop9z6er61.png?width=353&format=png&auto=webp&s=962120e4b1c6855cfd4ced9b2afd9accfb57b7b0 So has the director of the company recently bought 15792 shares and sold 38703 and 121334 shares (which seems to be a negative sign for the stock)? Could anyone explain to me the meaning of "Exercise of third party derivative" and "Redemption, retraction, cancellation, repurchase" in this context? Thank you very much.   submitted by   /u/TorJoe2020 [link]   [comments]

  30. SRGA - President of company buys 98% ($1M) worth of shares in Surgalign Holdings for $1M (20/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    From Yahoo Finance: Those following along with Surgalign Holdings, Inc. (SRGA) will no doubt be intrigued by the recent purchase of shares by Terry Rich, President of the company, who spent a stonking US$1.0m on stock at an average price of US$0.93. That purchase boosted their holding by 98%, which makes us wonder if the move was inspired by quietly confident deeply-felt optimism. The Director Pawel Lewicki made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for US$3.0m worth of shares at a price of US$1.50 each. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at above the current price of US$1.16. Their view may have changed since then, but at least it shows they felt optimistic at the time. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. It is generally more encouraging if they paid above the current price, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels. Over the last 12 months Surgalign Holdings no insiders have sold any shares. *************** According to TipRanks based on 6 Wall Street analysts offering 12 month price targets for Surgalign Holdings in the last 3 months: The average price target is $3.42 with a high forecast of $4.00 and a low forecast of $2.50. The average price target represents a 174.70% change from the last price of $1.25. Read that again: The average price target represents a 174.70% change from the last price of $1.25 AND the president just did some heavy buying.   submitted by   /u/celluloideyez [link]   [comments]

  31. 2iQ: Wolfpack’s Short Attack on Skillz: What Does Insider Transaction and Short Selling Data Tell Us? (20/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Full Article: https://www.2iqresearch.com/blog/wolfpacks-short-attack-on-skillz-2021-04-20 TL;DR - Decent short interest/utilization, but exercise caution. Short Selling Activity Moving on to short selling, our securities lending data shows that currently, there are 46.5 million shares short. Skillz has 326,316,000 million shares in issue which means that short interest is a high 14.3%. This level of short interest is slightly concerning. It suggests that a number of sophisticated investors are betting against the stock right now. Digging deeper into the short side data, we can see that, as of 16 April, utilization was a high 95.1%. Utilization refers to the number of loaned shares divided by the available shares in the securities lending market, expressed as a percentage. It is essentially a ratio of demand to supply. The high utilization rate here tells us that there is a strong demand to short the company’s stock relative to the number of available shares. Skillz: A Number of Red Flags Putting this all together, we think caution is warranted towards Skillz stock right now. Not only has the stock seen large sales from insiders but it has also seen a rise in short interest recently. These are both red flags. Additionally, the valuation remains high and the stock is locked in a downtrend, which suggests that investors are losing confidence. Going forward, we think it’s worth monitoring the insider transaction data closely. If insiders are confident about the future, we would expect to see some substantial insider buying at Skillz in the near future.   submitted by   /u/Grey_Patagonia_Vest [link]   [comments]

  34. Is it insider trading if I trade based on shitty past actions/character of a company's exec that I personally know? (01/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    A company recently IPO'ed in the last year. I know an exec whos done some crappy things, nothing illegal but just really misogynistic personal life behavior. More specifically he threw parties that give him a really bad look and I personally think there's a high possibility that people + news start catching on and paying attention to said parties. For reference, the parties are pretty cultlike and you have to chant stuff like "men are pigs but it's ok bc men rule the world" etc, unironically. Additionally, I just think that these parties and behavior reflect bad judgement and character that make him incapable of running the company well over the long term. If I trade based on this information, is that considered insider trading? I'm worried that since info of these parties haven't hit the news "yet" (if they ever do) is it considered insider trading it does eventually tank the stock?   submitted by   /u/poached-egg-gang [link]   [comments]

  40. Alaska has scored a 900% gain on GameStop this year - and boosted its bet on the meme stock last quarter (13/07/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Alaska has scored a 900% gain on GameStop this year - and boosted its bet on the meme stock last quarter | Markets Insider (businessinsider.com) Theron Mohamed Jul. 13, 2021, 08:33 AM Alaska&#39;s revenue department made a 10-fold gain on GameStop in the first half of this year. The state agency increased both its GameStop and Tesla bets last quarter. Alaska ramped up its Tesla stake from under $1 million to $89 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Alaska has been an unlikely winner from the GameStop short squeeze in January, racking up a 10-fold gain on the meme stock in the first half of this year. The state&#39;s revenue department owned 43,000 GameStop shares worth $802,000 at the end of December. It trimmed its stake in the video-game retailer to 38,400 shares over the next six months, but GameStop&#39;s stock price skyrocketed from under $20 to $214 in that period. As a result, Alaska&#39;s GameStop position surged in value by more than 900% to $8.2 million. Moreover, the agency potentially raked in another million dollars or so when it cashed out around 6,000 shares in the first quarter, depending on when it sold. Alaska may be warming up to GameStop again. After trimming its stake to about 37,000 shares in the first quarter of this year, it increased it by around 1,400 shares or 4% last quarter, a regulatory filing revealed this week. The state&#39;s revenue department also added to its Tesla holdings last quarter. It increased its stake by less than 1% to 128,000 shares, and Tesla&#39;s stock price inched up 2% in the period, meaning the position rose in value to $87 million. The agency ramped up its Tesla stake from 2,000 shares worth less than $1 million at the end of September 2020, to 127,000 shares worth $89 million at the end of December, likely because the stock was added to the S&amp;P 500 index. Elon Musk&#39;s electric-vehicle company has ranked among its largest holdings since then. Overall, Alaska&#39;s stock portfolio rose in value by 7% to $9.9 billion last quarter. The state doesn&#39;t tax personal incomes or sales, so it relies on oil taxes and royalties, federal funding, and investments to fund its budget. &#32; submitted by &#32; /u/SavannahSmiles_ [link] &#32; [comments]

    Small Market Cap - Job Recruitment/HR/Outsourcing Insiders have not sold a single share in the last year and the CEO has been quietly loading up since the January 15th, all at market price. He bought on 7 days in January, 14 in Feb, and 15 in March. The total cost of his March shopping spree has cost over 100k so far. The stock has performed solidly since this insider buying began, currently trading at almost $18 up from around $11.30 at the beginning of this buying spree back in Jan. He seems to DCAing a larger share of the company prior to economic reopening. If he&#39;s bullish about HSON&#39;s position for economic reopening and future profit potential, so am I.

  45. PLTR CEO Alex Karp recent selling breakdown (01/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    First of all, this is not FUD. I&#39;m just trying to break down the given numbers on Karp&#39;s recent stock sales. Alex Karp has sold over 54 million shares so far according to http://openinsider.com/insider/Karp-Alexander-C./1823951According to https://fintel.io/i/karp-alexander-c his last file date states he has around 85 million shares. After his recent selloff, Alex Karp still holds around 65.9 million shares. So that means he has sold around 45% of his total PLTR shares up to this date. Now, these numbers may not be exact but 54 million shares at $20 per share roughly make up that $ 1.1 billion dollars. Can someone verify this seems like an excessive amount? According to Karp (source: https://www.cnbc.com/2021/04/29/palantir-ceo-karp-earned-1point1-billion-in-2020-tied-to-equity-awards.html ), this sale is to offset taxes from his share options. After some more calculations, Karp now holds roughly around 4.25%ish stake in PLTR. Given that (66mil shares/86mil shares * 0.055 stakes (source number from https://fintel.io/so/us/pltr ownership) It seems like Karp gave up around 3.45% of his stake in PLTR to offset taxes. However, according to the SEC filing, Karp holds an initial 68.8 million options contracts that are due to expire on December 3rd. He still holds a majority of them although undisclosed at this point. Will be interesting to see what he does with them. https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/0001321655/000119312520250103/d904406ds1a.htm#rom904406_15 If there is anything else missing, please free to provide more information and links.

Strongbridge sold to Xeris and now E-Trade shows three different law firms are investing the company to see if they broke the law and whether they were fair to shareholders. Here is the jist of the deal: Strongbridge Biopharma plc (NASDAQ: SBBP) was sold to Xeris Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Under the terms of the merger, Strongbridge shareholders will receive 0.7840 shares of the combined company and 1 contingent value right (&quot;CVR&quot;) for each Strongbridge share that they own.

  48. TRCH sold shares ! That was why the price dropped on Tuesday? (22/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Once on the brink of bankruptcy, Torchlight Energy Resources (TRCH) sold $100 million in shares as it looks to take advantage of its new meme stock status. TRCH stock fell Tuesday. And the Plano, Texas-based exploration and production company isn&#39;t done. In a filing late Monday, Torchlight said it could issue another $150 million in stock. The shale producer, which has assets in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford formation, now has a market cap of $1.2 billion, nearly doubling in the last week as Reddit individual investors take aim at TRCH stock. Back in 2015, the company warned that it could go out of business as it struggled to pay debts and gain access to financing. The debt offering comes as Torchlight Energy Resources announced Friday that shareholders approved its deal to buy advanced materials Metamaterial. Then on Monday, Torchlight said it was extending closing its merger with Metamaterial to June 30 from June 24 to allow time to spay the special Series A preferred stock dividend. TRCH stock soared yesterday after users of the Reddit group r/TRCH announced in the early hours Monday that shareholders should &quot;Torch the short&quot; to get shares to 20 on Monday and 100 by Tuesday. https://www.investors.com/news/trch-stock-latest-meme-stock-shale-producer-soars/ &#32; submitted by &#32; /u/AndyLee168 [link] &#32; [comments]

I can find no site that lists such information. I can find insider transaction but not total shares owned/controlled. For this specific company, MSTRS, I find sites that state Michael Saylor controls 70% of the Company, yet other sites, that seem more official, that state institutions own 90% and insiders only only 0.3%.
