As of 8/2/97 Zacks has Inside Investors at 18%. Is this a valid number? Was the 45% posted by scamp in early July correct or has it fallen this much?
I got that original 45% from IBD. In looking at the 8/11 edition, it still lists it at 45%, although it has a small "k" after it. Anyone know what that means? After reading your message, I did some further research. The following information is from their Proxy statement last March:OwnerJack R. Ingram 384,700 17.50%Ronald L. Siegenthaler 374,669 17.05%Sedco Investments (Siegenthaler) 171,314 8.57%Donald E. Reigel 43,451 2.13%Ron B. Barber 31,520 1.58%Robert B. Wagner 21,800 1.08%Donald T. Duke 11,400 0.50%Robert D. Hisrich 12,900 0.58%All officers and directors as a group (10 persons) 949,740 37.36%Now, using the number of shares that Ingram and Siegenthaler own, and their percentages of ownership, they seem to be using a figure between 2.197 & 2.198 million shares outstanding. But this would give a figure of about 43% total ownership, rather than the 37.36 figure listed above. I have no idea why there is such a discrepancy. In any case, it does look like there is insider ownership in the 40% range.Stuart Campbell
The number I got was from Zack's research marvel. This is a pretty neat little tool but this isn't the first time that the data from it are suspect.Reinhard
There is an SEC 144 filing regarding insiders intention to sell shares, but I do not have the numbers.There is NEWS regarding a company buy back that has not happened yet.
