Facebook: Zuckerberg Selling Off!

Facebook shares have been crashing… and Zuckerberg has lost $15-$16 billion… that is, according to the MSM.   But a quick look at insider trading reveals that in the last month he has divested roughly 100,000 more shares than he was granted – daily.   The price per share that Zuckerberg cashed in at – $209, $208 and $207.  Netting him roughly $20,800,000 per day – for 25 days or $520 million thru July 25th.  In addition, another 140,000 shares were granted and sold representing his daily ‘salary’ (he takes no actual salary) amounting to $29,120,000 for 25 days in July = $728 million.  That would mean his monthly pay for 25 days in July was roughly $1,248,000,000.   So is he really ‘losing billions’?  

He still holds roughly 14.3 million shares of Facebook… currently trading at $175 per share, the net value to him would be over $2 billion not including his daily acquisition of 142,500 shares.  And then, of course, is the Zuckerberg Foundation which sits on piles of money and does absolutely – nothing.

So, the news that poor Zuckerberg is losing his shirt is a bit short-sighted at best, and rather misleading by truth.  But it does sound good.  The truth is he has been divesting his shares for some time and pocketing the cash – most likely in an offshore trust.

In 2011, Zuckerberg owned 24% of Facebook shares.   At the time there were 2.74 billion outstanding shares.  That would mean that at that time Zuckerberg owned over 657 million shares.  How is that possible given today he owns a mere 14 million?  Unless the plan has been in the making for quite some time…

In another twist, in 2011, a Russian investment firm, Digital Sky Technologies, owned 10% of the shares.    DST was founded by an Israeli Russian, Yuri Milner, who also has stakes in Twitter, Google, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Airbnb, Spotify and Alibaba.  Today, Alibaba shares are ranked within the top 6 of most ‘shorted shares’.

Coincidence?

Twitter shares are also being pounded and the MSM is asking if this is the end of social media…  Of course there is always a back answer, a reason behind the curtain being manipulated by the Wizard of Oz!

Pundits who do little to no research are claiming that Twitter and Facebook’s financial results were ‘disappointing’.  But Twitter has been operating at a significant Net Loss for well over five years while each year that loss is lower than the previous year.   According to the Shareholder Report released for the second quarter of 2018, their year over year revenue increased 27% while expenses increased only 3% and total users were up 11%.

So what’s the beef?  Hardly disappointing news.

Facebook’s first quarter earnings report for 2018 revealed a 50% year over year increase in revenues, and a 63% increase in Net Income, with a 13% increase in active users.

Hardly the report of a dying company!

But apparently, that is what the MSM would have us believe. Why?   Because the purpose is to dissolve interest in a platform that is utilized to a wide extent by conservative bloggers.  Because demonizing these social media giants and inundating them in lawsuits will ultimately fray the conservative voice and give further rise to a Liberal monopoly.  Because Hillary is convinced that these platforms caused her to lose.

But if Zuckerberg has already divested most of his shares, is he really complicit in the tanking of Facebook?   Is he a part of the inner circle?   And are the allegations and lawsuits all a part of the sham to devour and censor the platform utilized by the voices of America?

Is Zuckerberg aiding in the conservative media censorship by destroying his own company?  If in fact he initially owned over 657 million shares and today that number is 14 million, wouldn’t that indicate a long term plan in the making whereby his profit was secured?

In the end, Zuckerberg is no poker player, his face tells the story, and his share holdings back up the agenda…  Tch. Tch.  The wolves are everywhere.
