What’s Up with Carrizo Top Mgmt Continued Selling of Co. Stock?

Carrizo Oil & Gas CEO Chip Johnson continues to sell off his company stock. On June 1, Johnson sold 24,661 shares of company stock for $1.2 million. A few days later, on June 5, he sold another 6,000 shares for $309,000. Then again on September 8, Johnson sold another 6,000 shares netting him $217,000. And on October 5, Johnson sold yet another tranche of 6,000 shares, this time for $227,040 (see Carrizo O&G CEO Chip Johnson Continues to Sell His Company Stock). In an “Oops, I did it again,” Johnson sold another tranche of 6,000 shares earlier this week–this time for $193,440. That makes the grand total of Johnson’s stock sales 48,661 shares since June for a grand total of $2.1 million. But Johnson isn’t the only Carrizo top dog to sell. Others have sold their shares, including board member Roger Ramsey who this week sold 1,000 shares for $33,310. This is the third time–that we know of–that Ramsey has sold stock in the company he helps oversee (see Carrizo CEO Chip Johnson Sells Another 6K Shares of Stock and Carrizo Oil & Gas “Insiders” Continue to Sell Company Stock). We have to ask, what in the world is going on at Carrizo that top management continues to sell off their stock?…
