Whoa!

Blue Nile Director Mary Alice Taylor Exercises Options for 20,000 Shares, Sells Stock.

She exercised options on 20,000 shares of stock at $0.25 apiece, then turned right around and sold them at about $55.50-ish.

She bought them for $5,000, then sold them for $1,105,000. Profit of $1.1 million bucks. Granted, after taxes that will be, eh, what, maybe $777K or so, but still!

::WHEW:: Not too bad, huh?!?!

Hey, I just realized that we’re related. Or at least, I have a relative named “Mary”, and another one named “Alice”, and I’m pretty sure somebody married a Taylor somewhere along the line…Auntie!! How the heck are you?! Well, shoot, I wouldn’t dream of mentioning it, but since you ask, I would rather like one of these…always been partial to sapphires, heh heh…don’t suppose you’ve got, like, a ‘newly discovered long-lost niece’ discount or anything…?
