9. Here's something about Ryan's trades that may be of interest to Wisconsin tax collectors...
The guy and his wife may've incorporated something special in tax-free Florida.
I am a little more concerned about the fact that these disclosures show Paul Ryan and his wife have a rather large limited investment partnership headquartered in income-tax-free Florida given that he's so proud of having never left his roots and all. I wonder if the homestate coattails would be a little less effective if folks in WI started asking whether Ryan's been scamming them out of income tax money. This and another partnership could also hold interest in Ryan's family business... a sizable inheritance would really put a dent in the whole Galt image.
Regarding your question:
Definition of 'After-Hours Trading - AHT'
Trading after regular trading hours on the major exchanges. The increasing popularity of electronic communication networks (ECNs) has greatly facilitated after-hours trading, which is no longer restricted only to large institutional investors but is now available to any investor. Also known as the "after-hours market."
Investopedia explains 'After-Hours Trading - AHT'
After-hours trading volume in specific stocks often surges upon the occurrence of market-moving events, such as earnings reports, pre-earnings announcements or M&A activity. Lower liquidity and wider bid-ask spreads are a common feature of after-hours trading. However, investors may consider this a small price to pay for the privilege of exiting a losing position before regular trading commences, or initiating a new position ahead of the crowd.
After-hours trading is heaviest in the first hour or two after markets close, before tapering off sharply. As financial markets become increasingly integrated with the advent of globalization, after-hours trading is likely to expand going forward.
Yes, I'm no expert, but from what I can see, when it comes to the love of money and property, no one tops the modern greedhead as exemplified by today's Republican leadership and the class of crony capitalists for whom they toil.
