Bird Global (NYSE:BRDS) stock is on the move Friday as investors react to news of leadership buying the company’s shares.
According to a press release, leaders of Bird Global are buying more than 1.5 million shares of BRDS stock on the open market. These leaders include CEO Shane Torchiana and chairman and founder Travis VanderZanden.
Torchiana said the following in a news release about Bird Global leaders buying BRDS stock:
“Senior leadership has continued to purchase shares due to the disconnect between share price and our expectation to increase long-term value by generating free cash flow […] Coming off of our best ever Q1 performance in gross margin, free cash flow, and adjusted EBITDA, we are optimistic about our ability to reach profitability as the weather improves from the winter months.”
BRDS Stockholders React
While leaders buying shares of a company’s stock would normally boost morale, that isn’t happening today. Instead, BRDS stock is continuing to lose ground with light trading on Friday.
As of this writing, roughly 1 million shares have changed hands. That’s a far way off from the company’s daily average trading volume of about 18.2 million shares.
One thing that could be keeping BRDS stock down today is a reverse stock split. That reverse split when into effect after markets closed on Thursday.
BRDS stock is down slightly as of Friday morning.
