No one does it better than Robert Toll though. In his con call this week, Toll said he felt Toll Brothers' "intrinsic" value was $150/share---nearly double today's $80 price.

Yet Toll has sold millions of shares over the past year at much lower levels, most recently in March---all the while talking about "torching the shorts" and bitching about how undervalued his company is.

I don't blame CEOs for profit-taking when they hold tons of shares. But if a CEO truly felt shares were worth twice as much as the quote, wouldn't they be buying more or at least not selling any?

Bob Toll, and his ilk, are the reason Americans are increasingly cynical about the stock market and about corporate leadership in general. They say one thing, do another, laugh all the way to the bank. Same as it ever was.

Who's the poor soul that bought 1000 shares. Or did someone just do that so there would be a token purchase and the column wouldn't actually have a big ZERO in it.

The buyer was a Robert Parry, who purchased 1000 shares on march 28th. Three days later he sold 6700. They must have had a board meeting beforehand and elected him to tbe the patsy buyer.

Otherwise he bought and then noticed he was getting weird looks and snickers behind his back. Finally someone pulled him aside and said; DUH!
