Yeah he's planning on buying a few houses, cars, boats, etc. The guy wants money in the bank and not in stock. Who cares.

I think he sees something in the future that doesn't sit right with him.

He's gonna have to pay a lot of capital gains on that, I bet.

So it's true after all: the world will end in 2012. The rich and famous are buying their tickets for the bail out to space or the oceans.

Apple's fall due to gravity...I don't think anyone understands the gravity of the situation at Apple.

No, like the rest of the rich folks, he's fleeing for the exits
before next years huge tax increases for the one percenters.
Forward.

Not just the so-called 1%, but anyone with appreciable capital gains. Many of the options that Mansfield routinely exercises and then sells are at very attractive prices. I am a long way from the 1% but I have sold off quite a bit of stock in the last few weeks in preparation of a tax increase. All the folks who only think it is the "rich" who are going be soaked in the coming tax rise are in for a very big surprise.
