The ceo of ALSK owns nearly one half a million shares. The stock options both he and the other officers receive are part of their overall pay package. Please do not pay any attention to the bashers that constantly talk about so and so selling stock. They are Idiot Bashers!
Insiders only sell they never buy. They sell enough to pay taxes on their shares they get for $0.00.
How's Buy @ $1.88 sell @ $1.95 over and over and over. I am holding a huge position. working out for you?
not to quibble with you, however....If you get stocks at "zero" dollars there is not a taxable event. So the officers can told.....however, the officers chose not to hold and sell at the market which is a taxable event for which they have to pay taxes.
What is more important is that they chose to cut and run. Now let's say that they knew the market value of the stock was going to go up immensely....they would not be selling at today stupid low price. So in a nutshell there's the RUB....THEY SELL!
