    • Hard to draw conclusions from the aggregate data like this. Overall the existing institutional guys increased their total holdings by 2.5M shares, but the number of the ones that liquidated position exceeded the ones that were new (new investors) exceeds by almost 5M. All in all the institutional owners in Q1 dropped share count a bit. This is why in Q1 price was so low.
      Another interesting fact is that some very respectable funds drastically increased their holdings of ACLS including New York Mellon Bank and GOLDMAN SACHS GROUP. These guys do their research well. This might be a good sign.
      Mary Puma sold about 12 thousand shares two weeks ago. Its not much but why she would do that . She owns well over 400 thousand shares. Yet, why sell? Maybe she just needs cash and this is her legal window period to sell. Still, I never like when insiders sell anything.
