Two members of Apple brass sell off small amounts of stock

Transactions come despite sagging shares

Two key people with Apple have sold off modest quantities of stock, according to US Securities and Exchange Commission filings spotted by AppleInsider. Last Thursday, board chairman Arthur Levinson sold off 7,500 shares, which at the time were valued at $560.65 per share. That earned Levinson over $4.2 million before any applicable taxes.

Apple's general counsel, Bruce Sewell, disposed of 2,438 shares on the same day at a price of $549, plus 2,700 more shares valued at $550 each. The combined transactions grossed Sewell $2.8 million, but that was in addition to 5,137 shares sold on November 1. Those went at a rate of $600 per share, giving the attorney another $3 million.

The timing of the most recent sales is unusual. Apple stock has been on a steady decline in recent weeks, and typically the company's executives only jettison shares at high values.

    I don't think it's anything more than end-of-tax-year selling, since the number of shares sold are pretty low. It does suggest that AAPL may not go up significantly until January, when the company reports massive amounts of stuff sold.

    7500 and about 10000 are a large number of shares? I had 1200 shares at one point. Now 50k or 100k shares, that'd be a high amount. This is more like buying a new house money.

    Which is it? Small or Large?
