Why #Squarepocalypse Isn’t a Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is actually an element of planned sales by the billionaire co founder. He soon began the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. sixteen. Since that time, he has sold 700,000 shares through the newest divestiture of his on Jan. four.
To estimate the entire sales, he likely generated $160 million in pre tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
If you are thinking about offering based on these planned sales, don’t. Square’s got plenty of room to run in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is today trading at over $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up more than ten %.
And that is in addition to the 245 % gains it achieved in 2020, something I’d a suspicion would happen. Here is what I published on Jan. three, 2020:

Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 as well as $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or maybe 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier.
