You seem to be a fairly savy investor and it is true that the chairman owns 11M shares, but you fail to consider that this company is releasing earnings information on November 12, 2002, this coming Tuesday,
Why sell shares, even a pittance, the week before earnings information if the news is going to be good? Doesn't it make more sense to sell the 20K shares after a great earnings announcement?
It has to make one wonder whether or not Tuesday's announcement is going to be all that great.
There is no point in our arguing about this. We'll both know Tuesday.
