MicroStrategy bitcoin purchases
MicroStrategy BTC purchase announcements tend to be followed by short-term negative price action.

From January 1 to March 23, MicroStrategy issued and sold $339.4m of its class A common stock. The Silvergate prepayment was fully funded using proceeds from the sale of Shares.
