  1. Zuck sold 20M shares because he had to pay taxes on the 60M shares he called at $.06. Ridiculously bullish.

    • Agreed – insiders sell for many reasons, but there is only one reason they buy. The concern here is that many insiders have sold many shares, and nobody bought.

      The stock will close higher this year no doubt. The question is, at what point will bulls take the money and run? The answer to this question is unquantifiable given the skewed fundamentals in this screen, and so no one will know for sure until it actually happens… unfortunately by then it may be too late and many good people could get caught in the stampede out.
