Leaders and loved ones rush to “lock in” before Tet?

With just a few more trading sessions until the Lunar New Year, the stock market is gearing up for a break. Prior to this holiday period, data from the trading week of January 29th to February 2nd, 2024 indicates a notable trend of company leaders and their close associates actively selling off their stocks.


Vice General Director of DP3 has finished selling 800,000 shares

Mr. Nguyen Thanh Tuan – Member of the Board of Directors, Deputy General Director of Central Pharmaceutical Corporation 3 (HNX: DP3) reported that he has sold 800,000 shares of DP3 as registered from 23-26/01/2024.

After the transaction, Mr. Tuan reduced his ownership ratio in the Company from 9.68% (2.1 million shares) to 5.96% (1.3 million shares).

Based on DP3’s closing price on January 26th of 72,300 VND/share, up over 21% since the beginning of October 2023, it is estimated that Vice General Director DP3 can make more than 57 billion VND after reducing his ownership stake in the Company.

Did T&T Corporation transfer all shares of BHI to Vegetexco?

T&T Corporation reported that it has sold all 9.95 million shares (9.95% stake) of Saigon – Hanoi Insurance Corporation (BSH, UPCoM: BHI). After the transaction, T&T Corporation is no longer a shareholder of BHI. The Corporation stated that the purpose of the transaction is to withdraw capital invested in the insurance company.

Instead, Vegetexco JSC (OTC: Vegetexco) reported that it has purchased 10.1 million shares, equivalent to a 10.1% ownership stake in BHI. Interestingly, both transactions were executed on the same day, January 29th.

On January 29th, BHI recorded a negotiated transaction with a volume equal to Vegetexco’s trading volume. The transaction value was nearly 192 billion VND, equivalent to 19,000 VND/share. In this session, BHI closed at 20,000 VND/share.

It is worth noting that the trading volume of BHI shares matched in this session was only 1,500 shares. Therefore, out of the 10.1 million shares of BHI traded, 9.95 million shares were transferred by T&T Corporation to Vegetexco, earning over 189 billion VND from the deal.

Vegetexco stated that since 2016, T&T Corporation and Saigon – Hanoi Insurance Corporation have been strategic shareholders of the agricultural enterprise. Therefore, it is highly likely that BHI is still within the T&T Corporation ecosystem as a related company of Vegetexco.
