    Recently reported big institutional buys...

    What do you make of these recently reported huge institutional buys?

    Why has the share price been falling so much if there was so many big institutional buys? When were these buys actually made? Have they been selling these buys already? Why would they be making such huge buys if they thought BK was on the table? Who were they buying from? Retail? All of these huge buys have been reported just in the last month. Any insight on how there could be so many recently reported huge institutional buys and the stock be at 20 cents?
