    100 million sold by insiders is NOT a lot of money..

    There have been more insider sales in the last month than the rest of the last four years combined and you don't make much of it? It seems they were planned but still you might want to think that over.

    Vaporgenie, where do you see that the two biggest insiders sold over half their holdings?

    • I made a mistake with that comment. ONE of the biggest insiders sold over half his holdings:feinstein.

      i thought Eisenberg did the same since he also sold about 1 million shares, but he owned more shares than I thought.

      Still, several other insiders sold a large portion of their holdings in april after the earnings report. The insider sales are far above what could be considered normal for this company.

      Its obvious that the insiders dont like their own stock.

      • Look, you folk are working an old topic...each year the same scenerio of "insider trading". I've traded in & out of BBBY for 8 years now. It's no big deal...if it was then the big money would bail. I agree the pps should and will be lower, for whatever reason it won't break below $29. One thing is for sure, it's one heck of a trading stock...I will not be a buyer for a while, only quick short trades. It appears I am not the only one. Most likely shorts are trading shares back and forth with those holding not making a dime.

        Capturing profit is what is important, I have made over 40 trades since last Friday making anywhere from $25 to $3200. This formulated "insider selling" issue is only important to those that need the stock to drop in order to break even, they shorted too soon and are irritated the stock will not break. They failed to recognize a $2-3 range for a week and trade around it.

        Get over it, play the market and don't have the market play you. Sometimes it's just plain luck for a winning trade and sometimes it's not knowing when to cut your losses and start again.

      • Correct Vapor, They also continue to sell. Check the insider trading. They just sold again last week. In my opinion this is why the stock has not tanked. They are still selling and keeping the price up.

      • OK thx, I was wondering, I was looking at

        torrential selling recently and NO buying for years
