    Special Divvy

    Good for you its a big part of your retirement account then you should have known when DEBRA was selling her shares in the $50's.

    Your a DB obvisoulsy. Else you would tell everyone how insiders haven't been selling at least since Nov. 2010 that I have been watching. Hence why your a DB.

    Lets see when they start making her run again, my guess is not until DEBRA buys back those 74K shares she sold on may 5, 2011. Though she still owns over 730K was a 9% stake she sold off.

    My bet is they are about drive it way up once the other two companies they acquired start pumping up the balance sheet. Knowing these DB though they will drop her some more..get your fat fingers ready to pick some more up at $40.

      • When I checked the insider trading for the last couple of years I saw a large number that acquired stock on open and non markets along with dispositions that are usually from stock options and when sold after a period of time provide a tax benefit.
        Inside trading is often misunderstood since the general public believes a purchase is positive and a sale is negative.
        The officers of a company are no different then the members of this board.Their wants and needs along with their toys may be different then yours and mine but in most cases they sell because they need the money to fit their life style. The WSJ had an article a number of years ago that spoke about inside trading and in most cases the officer selling was using the money to pay for college,purchase a new house or summer house,fancy cars,airplane,divorce etc.
        Also in many cases the stock amounts to more than their salary and is often viewed as their saving plan that will be used when needed.
        Lastly if you look at the numbers for VTR you will see that less then 10% were sold by the officers in the time frame in question. I think owners of this stock should be able to sleep well at night without the concern of the stock actions of it's officers.
