    Trying to find out if Vanguard is dumping google stock

    I was at an after work cocktail party in Philladelphia last night and I overheard two people talking about how they began selling large blocks of positions in google stock Friday afternoon. I asked the guy at the party who knows everyone there who they were, and he said they were bigwigs at vanguard. I don't know anything else, hoping I can find out if Vanguard was selling Friday. I looked to see the holders of google, and I saw that Vanguard is a holder. I'm a goog holder, but I have only 70 shares ($54,000) I don't want to give any of these gains back. If vanguard is selling, i think I'm in trouble, they are big share holders. Is there a way to find out if they sold on Friday, and are continuing to sell? They can push the price down a good bit.

        I called my friend from the party and I asked him if he could ask those guys for me about google. he said he couldn't ask them as he told me that type of information is confidential, and they could get fired. But he gave me the personal email address to a woman who was at the party and works for one of the bigwigs at vanguard. I emailed her, and she quickly replied back with "no comment". So my guess when people say no comment that its probably true, and now I'm not taking any chances and I'm going to sell all 70 Shares. Hopefully I can get $775, but i'll even take as low as $760. I think I might of been too greedy, I should of sold Friday. But a profit is a profit. I know to follow the people with the money, If they sell I sell, if they buy, I buy. Right now it looks like I need to get out, and wait for the next cocktail party.
