April 2024 144 Market Report

Aggregate 144 Market Value

In April 2024, the total reported value of Form 144s fell 62% from March. This month-over-month decline in total value is accompanied by a decrease in the number of registered shares, which fell 59%, as well as the number of filings, which fell 57%. The overall slow-down is not surprising, however, since April is typically a slow month due to restrictions on trading activity during earnings season. March-to-April 2023's decline was 76%. Alternatively, when last month's numbers are compared to April 2023, Form 144 value, shares, and number of filings increased across the board. Specifically, the value sold not under 10b5-1 plans surged 128% year-over-year, and the number of unplanned filings increased by 64%. The dramatic increase in unplanned Form 144 selling activity may indicate insiders’ urgency to dispose of shares during a period of market uncertainty.
