On Jan. 4, 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 an element of planned sales by the billionaire co-founder. He began the weekly sales of 100,000 shares on Nov. 16. Since that time, he has sold 700,000 shares through the newest divestiture of his on Jan. four.
To estimate the whole sales, he likely generated $160 million in pre-tax proceeds. Heck, even billionaires have bills to pay.
When you are thinking about offering based on these planned sales, do not. Square’s got ample space to work in 2021.

Square Stock Hits $300 Square stock is already trading at at least $240. Since Jan. 1, the stock is up over 10 %.
And that’s along with the 245 % gains it attained in 2020, something I’d a suspicion would happen. Here is what I published on Jan. 3, 2020:
Since Q3 2017, Square’s GPV [gross transaction volume] from sellers with an annual GPV of more than $500,000 grew 700 basis points to 27 %. 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 100 basis points to 28 %. Why is this critical? It demonstrates the company’s revenue has grown to be a lot more diversified; it now gains from fee processing across organizations of all sizes.
How’s it doing a year later on this front?
In the third quarter of 2020, sellers with yearly 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 previous 12 months. Sellers with annual GPV between $125,000 as well as $500,000 were $8.7 billion in Q3 2020, or maybe 10.1 % higher than in the third quarter a year earlier. These two groups accounted for 61 % of seller GPV in Q3 2020, 500 basis points higher than the previous 12 months.
Without a doubt, sellers with annual GPV under $125,000 still accounted for 39 % of general seller GPV, but it shows bigger companies’ acceptance rate, which happens to be important to its constant development.
To get to $300 sooner in 2021, two things have to keep growing: Cash App, its finance app, and then Square Capital, its lending platform.
