Zuck Sells Close to $200 Million More of Meta Shares This Week

Meta Platforms (Nasdaq: META) CEO Mark Zuckerberg has not stopped unloading shares of the social media giant. In the last week alone, he has sold about $195 million worth of stock at an average of around $497.53 per share.

Zuck has sold about 418,129 shares of the company since February for a whopping $1,187,958,324. As founder and CEO, he still owns over 300 million shares worth about $150 billion based on the same $497.53 average price per share.

These huge sell-offs from CEOs and founders like Zuck and Amazon’s (Nasdaq: AMZN) Jeff Bezos come as markets reach new highs. The Nasdaq, where Meta and Amazon are listed, recently set a new record, and the S&P 500 just set its best first-quarter performance in five years.

Meta stock is also enjoying good momentum, rising from its metaverse downturn, and shares are up 136.46% year over year. On top of this, Zuckerberg and his peers might also be taking advantage of the time before the markets get shaky again leading to the national elections.
