Maybe Steve needs an increase in his bonus - could that induce him to sell something? Competitors are eating Atmel alive. He had to know the Samsung situation - but said nothing as far as I can tell.
I wasn't going to wait and find out, selling over half of my shares at just below $8. I am now just barely above water with the rest.
I am reasonably sure Stevie would like that, but it would have to be an increase in the RETENTION bonus, because he doesn't have that much to show for his tenure in the performance department...
Indeed not - the resume is looking very thin on this guy. Maybe we send him on a long vacation?
