Why #Squarepocalypse Is no Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is actually part 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 his latest divestiture on Jan. four.
To estimate the entire sales, he probably generated $160 million in pre-tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
When you’re considering 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 right now trading at at least $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up over ten %.
