Independent Vice Chairman & Lead Independent Director Carl Braunlich Just Sold A Bunch Of Shares In Full House Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLL)

We’d be surprised if Full House Resorts, Inc. (NASDAQ:FLL) shareholders haven’t noticed that the Independent Vice Chairman & Lead Independent Director, Carl Braunlich, recently sold US$114k worth of stock at US$3.42 per share. Equally important, that sale actually reduced their holding by a full 82% which hardly makes us feel bullish about the stock.

The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Full House Resorts

Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the Independent Non-Executive Chairman, Bradley Tirpak, for US$235k worth of shares, at about US$1.97 per share. So it’s clear an insider wanted to take some cash off the table, even below the current price of US$3.23. We generally consider it a negative if insiders have been selling, especially if they did so below the current price, because it implies that they considered a lower price to be reasonable. While insider selling

In Baldwin Hills, the longtime home of the late film director John Singleton is up for grabs for the first time in 30 years, hitting the market for $1.8 million.

Singleton — who directed hits such as “Baby Boy” and “2 Fast 2 Furious” — has been the home’s only owner since it was built in 1989. Records show he bought it for $700,000 in 1990, a year before the release of his debut film, “Boyz n the Hood,” which is set in nearby Crenshaw.

The house sits on a third of an acre on a hillside cul-de-sac overlooking Los Angeles. A turf backyard, as well as a private balcony attached to the owner’s suite, take advantage of the scenic setting.

Inside, four bedrooms and four bathrooms are spread across 4,900 square

Newly released emails show Faulconer, top aides overruled city real estate director on Ash Street property

Mayor Kevin Faulconer began meeting with the former owners of the high rise at 101 Ash Street in 2014, a full year before Sempra Energy vacated the property, according to a new cache of emails released by the city under the California Public Records Act.

The communications also show the building’s previous owners, Sandor Shapery and Douglas Manchester, enjoyed access to the mayor and his senior aides, allowing them to market their building to city officials.

“Does the shortened 25-year lease option improve the look of the proposal?” Shapery representative Richard Ledford wrote to Faulconer’s then chief of staff, Stephen Peutz, in July 2014. “May we set that second meeting with the mayor on this issue?”

Taken together, the 80-plus pages of emails show more clearly how the city came to enter what is now considered one of the worst land deals in the history of San Diego governance.
