Why #Squarepocalypse Is no Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is actually part of planned sales by the billionaire co founder. He soon began the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. 16. Since then, he has sold 700,000 shares through the newest divestiture of his on Jan. 4.
Estimating the entire sales, he probably generated $160 million in pre tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
If you’re thinking about selling based on these planned sales, don’t. Square’s got plenty of room to work in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is right now trading at more than $240. Since Jan. 1, the stock is up more than 10 %.
And that’s on top of the 245 % gains it attained in 2020, something I’d a suspicion would occur. Here’s what I published on Jan. 3, 2020:

How is it doing a year later on this front?
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 preceding year. Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 and $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or maybe 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier. These 2 groups accounted for sixty one % of seller GPV within Q3 2020, 500 basis points higher compared to the earlier year.
Without a doubt, sellers with yearly GPV under $125,000 still accounted for thirty nine % of overall seller GPV, but it shows larger companies’ acceptance rate, which is important to the constant development of its.
