    Insider Shares


    CEO Clark had 100 shares on 3-01-2011 and by the end of 2012 his holdings increased to 783,000 shares with little change in 2013. That sounds like big-time accummulation to me.

    CFO Devine had 50.8K on 3-08-2011 and by the end of 2012, his holdings increased to over 83.3K by the end of 2012 with little change in 2013. That sounds like very significant accummulation to me.

    Obviously these two insiders disagree with our two resident shorts about BPi's future.

    Thomson Reuters rates insider trading on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest score. As of 2-05-2012, they rated BPI ----- 8

    • retiredrhb - you have no idea what you're talking about.

    • Better take that course on critical reasoning and start reading the public filings. The Clark and Devine shares were not acquired on the open market and did not involve any actual cash outlay.

      The acquisitions were non-cash transactions of options at a strike price of $0.32 per share (according to the SEC Form 4 filed by BPI on 9/13/2012). It appears that BPI actually bought back sufficient shares in rder to front the cash for option strike price and cover tax withholding.
