    Why would I think you had an agenda? He simply took advantage of older stock options due to expire in 2 and 4 years, at a good profit. With the state of the economy, the leftist focus of both the administration and congress, he probably did what was prudent. Raise cash and diversify. He retains a reasonably significant position in VFC stock. Would you place your future in the hands of Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Waxman, Obama and their whacky friends? Good luck, if you would.

    • My only focus with stocks is when to buy, when to sell, when to short, and when to cover. I wasn't looking at politics. I was looking at insider selling and I appreciated your comments on that. Will it change my mind? It may make me more watchful, but I've shorted VFC, just as I have already taken some profits on another retail short. I have shorted some stocks other than VFC. The alternative would be to stand aside after selling longs. But IMHO, sometimes when it's time to sell stocks(as you are agreeing with, I think), it's also time to short some.

      • My point was that there can be many reasons for exercising options and it should not be construed as a negative vote of confidence. When making your decision, go to the company's investor relations site and look at the Form 4. You can learn a lot. Do not ignore the political and tax environment. There can also be numerous personal reasons, which you will probably never know. Is the individual making a prudent decision based on what is known?

        Often on these boards, short term traders attempt to influence a stock with mis-leading negative or positive (incomplete) opinions.
