they do not see them as awarded shares, they actually think that they are paying for them. Like you said they are awarded a certain amount of shares and then they dump them as soon as expiration day. They have to hold them for a specific time before they sell them. I tried explaining this issue but some traders do not understand yhis practice that cvm has been doing for years. You can make money trading cvm, but not at this price. They feel the truth is bashing.
The "A" code on the SEC Form 4 means "Acquired". So your statement of them "dumping" the shares is not accurate. There would need to be a second SEC Form 4 for the sale of these shares. So yes,,,,they were awarded shares as part of their comp package, but no, they did not sell any of them.
