There has been vehement insider selling on Flywire (NASDAQ: FLYW) stock recently.
Flywire is a global payments enablement and software company, offering its clients an innovative and streamlined process to receive reconciled domestic and international payments in a more cost-effective and efficient manner.
Notably, the company has lost half of its market capitalization over the past six months and now has a market cap of $2 billion.
Yesterday, Director Jo Natauri sold 905,192 shares of FLYW stock worth $17.93 million at $19.70 price levels.
In fact, Jo is an employee at Goldman Sachs and has sold a large number of shares over the past fortnight in three separate transactions worth another $9.4 million. Jo now holds 1.91 million shares worth $38.14 million after the series of Sells.
Besides Jo, FLYW Director Riese Phillip John made an uninformative Sell of 5,000 shares of the stock worth $95,974 at $19.19 price levels, and now holds 7,290 shares worth $145,840.
Insiders at Flywire are clearly pessimistic about the stock’s near-term prospects and have sold a whopping $27.2 million worth of shares in the past three months.
Wall Street’s Take
Despite the Insider Selling, Flywire has a Strong Buy consensus rating on Wall Street based on seven Buys and one Hold assigned in the past three months. The average Flywire price target of $35.50 implies 83.84% upside potential.
