ADT / Apollo Senior Executives Increase Stock Holding

Did you see ADT stock price jump this week when about 20 senior executives announced an increase in their stock ownership? It looked like lots of senior insiders were adding to their portfolio due to expectation of something BIG. DON’T BELIEVE IT. Most “observers” are not professional stock analysts (nor am I) and could mis-interpret the actions, motivating them to buy/sell at the wrong time. Most of the executives were issued a very small amount of stock, generally less than 100 shares valued less than $1000. The explanation was due to an error in earlier issue of bonus shares. The timing seems odd. The “lock-up” period (technical term related to new IPO) ends July 18, allowing insiders to buy/sell at will.

Question…. Was the timing due to sloppy management (or subtle master plan)?
