Well, looking from it purely from Dahua's founder perspective, it's a lot better to be diversified and not locked into Dahua stock, which if or when it falls, could wipe him out.

It is tricky though, if he sells too much he could spark a panic which would hurt himself.

Downward price pressure due to dilutive effects could also come if the incoming President is granted shares, warrants or options, as part of his comp package, which is typical (in US companies at least.)

Personally i thought this file explain why Mr Fu sold the stock recently.

As this file mention the Max money for the empolyee stock plan would be 116Million USD.

And the money should come from the shareholder's Interest free loan.So Mr Fu need to sell 122Million USD stock to gather the money.

Quite few years ago there were two companies, Huawei and ZTE, fighting the similar war in telecom space as Hik vs DH here.  Starting the race running like neck to neck, shoulder to shoulder.   Fast forward to now,  Huawei ends up overtaken Ericsson but ZTE got lost along the way.  

Guess history is repeating itself, again.

Different from Huawei and ZTE, Huawei is private company, ZTE is state owned company like HIK.  Dahua and HIK both publich anyhow.
