I was referred here from another Fool board. My question is this: If a major stockholder owns stock from a privately held company and the president of that company is very particular about who he sells the stock to, and an amount of stock is about to be sold to 1: pay estate taxes (the major stockholder died) and 2: diversify the portfolio of the person who inherited the stock (me), how do I know that the stock's value at sale is accurate, considering that the company who has an interest in keeping this sale price low is the one to quote the price??
