One thing that does seem pretty glaring is that despite the stock being up as much as 25% above the low just before last quarter's earnings, there has only been one small insider selling transaction. I defy you to find me a similar pop in the price over the years where jnpr insiders have not succeeded in more or less capturing the peak of any given price run up. It just seems eerily quiet on the insider selling front.
And what's up with the one director exercising but not selling a huge chunk of his options? Perhaps grooming ISO's in hopes of holding the stock a year to capture long term capital gains instead of ordinary income? Folks typically only take that AMT risk of holding into the next year when they have a LOT of faith in the stock. Do jnpr directors get NSO's or ISO's?
Perhaps we'll find out more before long when the company is out of its quiet period.
