Ruby Tuesday executives cash in

Ruby Tuesday executives are cashing in on the restaurant company’s recent success.100610rubytuesday8.mc13861.jpg

CEO and Chairman Sandy Beall last week sold about 101,000 shares for nearly $1.5M, his second million-dollar plus sale since October.

Other corporate officers, including Executive Vice President Kimberly Grant and Senior Vice President Nickolas Ibrahim, also have sold sizable chunks of the Maryville-based company’s stock within the past week.

Earlier this month, RT’s shares hit a 52-week high of $15.57 and the company reported a ten-fold increase in its quarterly profit.

Looks like the exec’s timing was pretty good, a year ago the stock price was under $7.
