Why #Squarepocalypse Isn’t a Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is actually an element of planned sales by the billionaire co-founder. He started the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. sixteen. Since then, he has sold 700,000 shares by using the latest divestiture of his on Jan. 4.
To estimate the total sales, he probably generated $160 million in pre-tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
If you’re considering selling based on these planned sales, don’t. Square’s got plenty of room to run in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is already trading at more than $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up more than 10 %.
And that is in addition to the 245 % gains it attained in 2020, something I had a suspicion would occur. Here is what I published on Jan. 3, 2020:

In the third quarter of 2020, sellers with yearly GPV greater than $500,000 accounted for 30.6 % of the $28.8 billion in seller GPV. That’s up 270 basis points from the earlier 12 months. Sellers with yearly GPV between $125,000 as well as $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier.
