Why are you yelling? You are pretty emotional about this one post.

My post:

“If you had an executive selling 50% of his holdings in a short time frame, that would be very revealing. 5%, not so much.”

Your reply:

“HOW ABOUT SELLING 99% OF YOUR STOCK IN A 3YR PERIOD??? WOULD YOU CONSIDER THAT REVEALING???”

Isn’t what you said consistent with what I said? I wasn’t replying to a post that showed FB stats over a 3 year period. The stats you cite later ARE indicative of a large program where insiders are dumping a lot of their FB stock. That is exactly the kind of data I would want to know before I drew any conclusions from it. Not the snapshot of smaller sales that I was commenting on.

I’ve not seen you so worked up before. I hope you’re feeling better today.

Sorry, but I was not yelling. That was a HEADLINE. For future reference, I am a tech - tard. I don’t know how to write in colors, bold, or italics, so I use Capital letters.

I rarely yell, and if I do, it’ll be noted that it’s a yell.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
NEXT IS MY ACTUAL COMPLETE REPLY TO YOUR POST(not a yell-transition):

HOW ABOUT SELLING 99% OF YOUR STOCK IN A 3YR PERIOD??? WOULD YOU CONSIDER THAT REVEALING???

It is possible that the real thing to notice on the link wrt Q drop is the summary of the last 12 months compared to others. Click the link below, and go to that section. Last year was the big drain.

What would be most definitive would be to see what each individual has been doing over the last 12-18 months.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Please note the first paragraph under the headlines. Where I am attempting to direct your attention to the market watch page that Q linked,(click the link to see it) and that Big Bobb copied and posted to begin with.( http://freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3734405/posts?page=700#700)(http://freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3734405/posts?page=707#707)

Clearly on the right hand side, under the title TRANSACTION SUMMARY, is information that is more relevant than the left hand graph side. It shows the 3,6,and 12 month activity.

12 months was 1,571 sales @ $45.7Million
6 months was only 159 sales @$3.8Million-still more than usual

To me that indicated a big dump somewhere, and so I did a search and provided a link to the story about ZuckerPucker.

So bottom line, I was trying to get you to focus on the right hand side of that FB Stat that you were replying to, which was quite revealing, and did show unusual activity over 12 months, instead of downplaying the relevance.

Trying to expand your view to the whole picture on that link and not just the one you kept posting about. End of Story.
