On Jan. four, Square (NYSE:SQ) chief executive officer Jack Dorsey converted 100,000 Class B shares into Class A shares and then sold the Square stock at an average price of $219.53.
Why #Squarepocalypse Is no Real Concern to Square Stock
The stock sale is actually a component of planned sales by the billionaire co founder. He soon began the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. sixteen. Since that time, he’s sold 700,000 shares by using the latest divestiture of his on Jan. 4.
To estimate the whole sales, he likely generated $160 million in pre-tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
If you’re considering offering based on these planned sales, don’t. Square’s got ample space to run in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is already trading at over $240. Since Jan. one, the stock is up over 10 %.
And that is along with the 245 % gains it achieved in 2020, something I had a suspicion would occur. Here is what I published on Jan. three, 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 twenty seven %. Meanwhile, those sellers with a yearly GPV of under $125,000 fallen 700 basis points to 45 %. At exactly the same time, sellers with between $125,000 and $500,000 in GPV increased by hundred basis points to 28 %. Precisely why is this important? It shows that the company’s revenue has become far more diversified; it now gains from payment processing across organizations of all the sizes.
How is it doing a year later on this front?
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 preceding year. Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 as well as $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or perhaps 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier. These 2 groups accounted for 61 % of seller GPV within Q3 2020, 500 basis points higher than the previous year.
Without a doubt, sellers with yearly GPV less than $125,000 still accounted for 39 % of general seller GPV, although it shows larger companies’ acceptance rate, which is important to its constant development.
To get to $300 sooner in 2021, two things have to hold growing: Cash App, its finance app, and then Square Capital, its lending platform.
