The other thing is that this stock sale could never be done 'at market', so a broker has probably had the sale for the last few days, trying to accumulate the 116k of stock in order to complete the order with the seller. Agree that it could lessen selling pressure.
We've seen this story before...in the wake of no news, market makers are moving the price in advance of options expiration. I think this offers a good opportunity to add to positions today and tomorrow, as we will see a pop next week. JMHO.
