It turns out, as more than 100,000 Robinhood daytraders panic bought DraftKings since its Nasdaq debut in April, soaring 237% in months – Liberman and other insiders dumped a whopping $596 million worth of shares.

On the pump, Liberman sold $31 million worth of stock, with about $15 million left. CEO Jason Robin sold $70 million worth of stock, while director Hany Nada liquidated $37 million. 

Clearly, by now, readers should understand the parabolic rise in DraftKings’ shares was nothing more than a spectacular pump – as what comes next is likely the dump.

But wait, there are more insiders dumping stock: Director Steven Joseph Murray sold $40 million worth of shares, while directors Shalom Meckenzie and John Salter sold collectively around $125 million. 

Howard Lindzon, the co-founder of StockTwits, recently noted the meteoric rise in DraftKings share price happened at a time when most sporting events were canceled because of the virus pandemic:

 “The chart of the day is Draft Kings, which has quadrupled to $12 billion now since it reverses merged into a shell and then changed ticker to $DKNG…unbelievable outcome considering the long regulated road and the fact that NO SPORTS !? Face with tears of joy.”

What goes up must come down: Robinhood traders will soon learn a painful lesson on gravity.
