From a news report on HEB. Any math majors want to figure out how much Stock HEB insiders own in dollar value?
Answer: Just under $200,000
CEO Carter's pay as listed last January. 1 million a year,plus a bonus of 242k.
The CEO's bonus was more than what the ENTIRE COMPANY OWNS IN SHARES.
Buy stock if you want, but this company is looking out for themselves in CASH and could care less about shareholders or the stock price.
Any Math Majors Out There Want to Tell Me How Much HEB Will Be Worth When They Hit, Who Cares As Long As They Are There, Which I Assure You Carter Will Benefit, He is A MAn Of Science Not A Stock 'Broker'
Did it ever occur to you that capitol gains on a stock purchase is much higher than many of the other potential tax shelters that could be utilized in this instance. Just because a CEO doesn't own a boat load of shares doesn't mean he won't benefit from the eventual outcome of the company you idiot. Does Ford Current CEO own vast numbers of the outstanding float of that company I could list many more for you but I think I have made my point. See just because an insider doesn't own controlling interest doesn't mean he has none, especially when he owns the patents and the rights to the company. Man this is economics one o one, maybe that money would be spent better elsewhere.
Capital gains happen when you sell the stock.
"CEO doesn't own a boat load of shares doesn't mean he won't benefit from the eventual outcome of the company you idiot"
Agreed however, when the CEO has little to no "skin in the game" and actually paid himself a bonus larger in dollar value than what insiders hold, huge red flag. And by the way, shareholders own the patent otherwise Carter would sell that also.
HUGELY relevant post nowwhat......HUGELY relevant.
let's see if jonjonfraud and company choose to address
it or run for cover and pretend it does not matter....
real investors know just how important this bell weather
is in ALL cases......HEB management is simply not in the least bit invested
in the company's success, except as a means to produce an
income for mr carter and his inept management(?) crew given they
are of no use to any real company.
Sorry but I disagree. I owned ATPG, T. Paul owned over 6 million shares. Insider ownership was over 20 percent. I thought there's no way they'll go BK, that they would do everything possible to prevent the loss of shareholder equity. I was wrong, and in the end, the insider ownership meant nothing.
