I think they are doing this so there is no one looking at them for selling at the highs while the company pays higher prices. If they waited after the buy back then people would look at them as if they had inside information. jmho
If they can push the volume up they would love to take that price out!
I am well aware of what that trade was. It means that some buyer wanted a broker to accumulate 1 million shares and that is what they did. If this has been going on a lot it means someone is accumulating because they are anticipating Alibaba is going to go up a considerable amount.
You shouldn't talk about yourself like that! Are you too stupid to look up that trade or just lazy? Probably both..
you just have to go to the Nasdaq website.... go to quotes then a/h and you will see the trade
very strange before the weekend
