This CEO Just Bet $1 Million on Herself

Kate Johnson is betting nearly $1 million that the investors fleeing her company are wrong.

Johnson bought 1 million shares of Lumen Technologies stock last week as it dipped into penny-stock territory, costing the telecommunications company boss $970,000. The former Microsoft and General Electric executive said the purchase made sense as she felt investors overreacted to a complicated third-quarter report and restructuring plan.
