He can't buy quantity at a lower price. Has to buy at 14 cents or higher. I think that the most likely explanation is that he is a short-term trader, didn't see a quick profit and wants to move on. Also, if you are going to take a loss you might as well take it just before the end of the year.
It is unlikely that he paid much more than 14 cents per share. If he left it for sale at 14 he would have got his money back within a week or two. Instead he'll be out of the way before the end of this week.
No complaints. He's keeping the volume on the chart looking good. Can't complain about that.
