Last Thursday, Sewell sold 2,438 shares of AAPL stock priced at nearly $549, while another 2,700 shares were sold for almost $550. In all, the total value of shares sold by Sewell last week was more than $2.8 million.
It was actually the second major transaction for Sewell this month, as he also sold 5,137 shares of AAPL stock on Nov. 1. Priced at $600 each, they were worth a total of more than $3 million.
Also last Thursday, Levinson parted ways with 7,500 shares of AAPL stock valued at $560.65. The total value for those shares was more than $4.2 million.
