Uber’s Co-Founder Dumped Uber’s Stock. Should Investors Sell Too? (The Motley Fool)
Travis Kalanick has ridden as far as he’s going to go. The co-founder and former CEO of Uber (NYSE:UBER) was an active seller of Uber’s stock in November and December, unloading 100% of his position. He grossed close to $2.8 billion through shares he owned directly and indirectly. Kalanick further ended his relationship with the company by resigning his seat on Uber’s board. When someone high up in a company buys or sells its own stock, it’s called insider trading. Insider trading, especially insider sales, can be a red flag for investors that something is amiss with the company and it’s time to move on. So, should investors sell Uber now that Kalanick is getting out?
