    Split? none since about 1993 . . .

    noticed that HCP split 2 for 1 back around 1993. . .with the price going up, any thoughts on another split?

    • Vic: Would the insider info tell us anything? I'm not smart enough about stock splits but I would think if the boss is buying, it may indicate that things are going in the right direction. New personnel as per Myles! It is interesting to see what does happen. If a split occurs, I'll buy more in the current environmet. Merry Christmas to all. Dick

        With the exception of politically correct obligatory new hire stock buys (or gimmes), insiders have been big net sellers this year. I don't think the stock is getting any strength from insiders since they are clearly sellers and have been since about $41. My guess is that they're in quiet period now and probably will be until earnings release sometime in mid to late January. So at least for the next 35 days or so, no sell pressure should be coming from inside, but based on consistent patterns this year, there are a probably a lot of insiders ready to pee their pants and that once the window opens in January there could very well be bigtime inside selling. I hope the hell not, but the recent patterns certainly don't show insiders are buyers at this level, and are more nervous holders.
