What's a good way for a CEO to show that he supports his company? Buying stock is one way to do it, and General Motors CEO Dan Akerson has done just that.
Purchased as a personal investment, Akerson has reportedly spent nearly $1 million buying up 30,000 GM shares. Akerson paid $31.33 per share, for a total purchase of $939,000. According to The Detroit News, this move brings his total investment of General Motors stock up to an even 50,000.

      BUYS $1M in stock... not GIVEN to him for free, like Mullaly's deal. While I think Mullaly is probably the better CEO, all of these guys are making way the F too much money.

          Right around the time American taxpayers were forced to bail out the union contracts and screw over the common stock holders as previously mentioned.

      Who wouldn't personally invest in a company guaranteed not to fail.

        FYI - in the bankruptcy, common stock owners got squat.
