HeadLever: From other sources, it said that she recieved 500,000 shares of company stock.
HeadLever: bootman:Perhaps she sold many them off too early because she was told lies about the shares being worthless.Not sure that I would be following this path until I got a second, independent opinion. Something tells me that she was likely not beliving most of what the other side was telling the court in the first place. Why should she belive this?
shower_in_my_socks: It's possible she received a cash equivalent to what she was told those 500,000 shares were worth, and it turned out Romney and her ex lied about how much the company was worth.
bootman: From the little I have read of her statements I am pretty sure that she is not a rational level headed person. In my book that makes misleading her all the more underhanded.
Two Dogs Farking: so she sold lots of it pre-IPO
HeadLever: What makes you think that she would belive a cohort of her ex-husband during a divorce of this magnitude?
shower_in_my_socks: If he lied under oath to screw over his friend's ex,
Snarky Acronym: If Romney lied under oath about the value of the company before it went public then that is perjury.
JusticeandIndependence: NowhereMon: I guess I'm a little curious about WHY Mitt Romney would even need to testify at his partners divorce trial...I'm not. and I don't care if Obama once thought about divorce.It's a stupid ploy and should not be paid attention to.
aug3: that meant his ex-wife received a poor divorce settlement,
HeadLever: aug3: that meant his ex-wife received a poor divorce settlement,Why? She got 500K shares of stock as part of the settlement. If she whould have kept it, she could have cashed in on that $19.00 per share. Or even the nearly $50 per share that it was selling for back in the mid 2000s. As far as I can tell, they did not force her to sell it when she did.
WordyGrrl: When a stock is referred to as "overvalued," smart investors know it's time to dump that crap stock pronto.
HeadLever: WordyGrrl: When a stock is referred to as "overvalued," smart investors know it's time to dump that crap stock pronto.When a stock is referred to 'overvalued' by you husband during the couse of a nasty divorce, you typically get a second opinion. Especially a divorce of this magnitude.
