Here's a list of all the insider trades since 2002 that I could find so far. I compiled it from SEC public records. I am seeing approximately $1,375,654 in sales since March. I can't guarantee 100% accuracy, though my eyeballs are melting and my head about to explode from trying for it. It's surely the big picture:

5,000 shares owned following transaction. (Note: This is what the form says, but it seems not to match the figure of 5,000 shares acquired Oct. 11, filed Oct. 15, 2002. Correct figure would seem to have to be 8,000, if the numbers acquired are accurate.)

15-Oct-02 (10/11/02) - MCBRIDE DARL C., President, CEO, (Director box also checked; Subject Company - Company Comformed Name is CALDERA INTERNATIONAL INC/UT )
5000 shares acquired, price=$1.13 . . . -$1.130 . . . -$5,650.00
5,000 shares owned following transaction.

TOTAL VALUE OF SHARES SOLD FROM MARCH 2003 to AUGUST 11, 2003= $1,375,654

This form, listed in the totals above, is interesting because of mentioning petroleum. It is listed by the SEC under Caldera, but the form itself says this about the company:

COMPANY DATA:
COMPANY CONFORMED NAME: BENCH ROBERT K
CENTRAL INDEX KEY: 0001012655
STANDARD INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATION: CRUDE PETROLEUM & NATURAL GAS [1311]
RELATIONSHIP: OFFICER
STATE OF INCORPORATION: DE
FISCAL YEAR END: 1031

I have no idea what this means about petroleum. I am just reporting it.

The list above isn't financial advice, so don't rely on it for that, naturally. I have provided links so you can verify and do your own searching and comparing. I did think it'd be handy to have this as an overall reference for Thursday, when SCO says it will comment on the sales. Now that Bloomberg has reported on the story, it's useful to document the facts.

As Groklaw reported earlier, the company decided to pay directors in stock a while back, and executives partly in stock. On the other hand, they did that before, and there wasn't the same level of activity. What I see is almost no activity until March, and then kaboom. I see no trading in 2001 at all. Dates are filing dates, followed by transaction dates, when there is a difference. If you note any errors, kindly let me know.

Don't ask me what it means, because I can't say. Literally. IBM has given its opinion in its Amended Answer. I'm not an expert in this area. It's just the research I was able to find, which I present AS IS, as they say. Others can build on it. On this article, if you have important corrections, please email them to me. When I make corrections on an article, sometimes comments get erased.

So, there you are, ready for Thursday.
