    CEO Sells

    Earley sold 60,000 shares on Monday at $4.26. Last week he exercised 116666 options at a cost of $.35 per. Nice work if you can get it. Today's high volume may indicate that more insider sales are taking place. JMHO

    • Yep, Earley sold the remainder of the 116666 shares from exercised options (which cost him 35 cents apiece) for $4,38 on Dec. 1st. http://finance.yahoo.com/q/it?s=MDF+Insider+Transactions

    • And some more sold yesterday and today.

      ==============================
      1-Dec-10 26,666 MDF Sale at $4.38 per share.
      30-Nov-10 30,000 MDF Sale at $4.27 per share.
      ==============================

      Maybe just a move to diversify portfolio or maybe indeed he feels that MDF is valued quite nicely already. In any case, we can decide how we want to use this information (and whether we want to sell some as well etc)

      on another note, Humana alraedy said that their profit will be lower in 2011 and 2012 due to the medicare funding cut. Maybe companies like MDF, CNU, and HS etc will be impacted as well.

      I'm still not decided what I want to do with my MDF shares (whether to continue holding all or start liquidating some). Having said that I still like the long term prospect (even after the medicare cut, and even longer than that when the medicare budget might be increased again). So far management has been doing the right moves (with stock buy back, careful approach on deploying capital, controlling MER to a very reasonable %, etc)

      How about you guys? still holding and continue to hold with all the info that we have today?

      • I had bought a few trading shares in the low 4s a couple weeks ago, sold those at 4.4 this am. Got lucky, usually my timing isn't that good.

        I still hold the vast majority of my shares and will continue to do so. The insiders still own a ton of shares even after these sales and short interest is not building.

        Ok, now this is a stretch, but in a weird perverse way maybe some of these sales are actually helping the company....since I would guess many of these insider sold shares ultimately end up being bought back by the company....so if it wasn't for the insider sales the company would be buying back at a higher price.....see I told you this was a weird way to look at it.

        Cheers.
