Why #Squarepocalypse Is no Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is a component of planned sales by the billionaire co-founder. He started the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. sixteen. Since that time, he has sold 700,000 shares by using the newest divestiture of his on Jan. 4.
To estimate the entire sales, he likely 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, do not. Square’s got ample space to run in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is today trading at at least $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up over 10 %.
And that’s in addition to the 245 % gains it realized in 2020, something I’d a suspicion would occur. Here’s what I wrote on Jan. 3, 2020:
Since Q3 2017, Square’s GPV [gross payment volume] from sellers with an annual GPV of more than $500,000 grew 700 basis points to 27 %.

In the third quarter of 2020, sellers with annual GPV greater than $500,000 accounted for 30.6 % of the $28.8 billion in seller GPV. That is up 270 basis points from the earlier 12 months. Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 and $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier. These two groups accounted for sixty one % of seller GPV within Q3 2020, 500 basis points higher compared to the previous year.
Of course, sellers with yearly GPV less than $125,000 still accounted for thirty nine % of overall seller GPV, however, it shows larger companies’ acceptance rate, which happens to be critical to the ongoing growth of its.
