Yeti Could Get Chilled By Lockup Expiration

April 23, 2019, concludes the 180-day lockup period of Yeti Holdings, Inc. (YETI).

When the lockup period expires for Yeti Holdings, the company's pre-IPO shareholders and insiders will be able to sell more than 60 million currently-restricted shares. With just 16 million shares trading pursuant to the IPO, there is a potential for the secondary market to be flooded by significant sales of currently-restricted securities when the lockup expires.

We expect that these pre-IPO shareholders and company insiders may be particularly interested in cashing in on some of their gains - YETI has a return from IPO of more than 75%. This group of pre-IPO shareholders and company insiders includes numerous directors and officers and twelve 5% shareholders.

It will take many days to unload all the shares that they have based on the average daily volume.

And you can't get shares to short ahead of time, but after the 23rd they will be available. May is going to be bloody

Is it wrong that I like this company solely for their ticker symbol? :)
