Kimbal Musk, the brother of Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, sold 30,000 shares in the electric car maker this month for around $ 25.6 million.

The younger Musk is a board member of the pioneering automaker. Another director, Antonio Gracias, sold more than 150,000 shares earlier this month.

Sales come after a dramatic run for Tesla that came to the S&P 500 late last year. The stock price is up more than 400% in the past 12 months but has stalled in the past few weeks and declined slightly over the past month.

Kimbal Musk's revenue was just over $ 850 per share, according to securities filings. Tesla's stock closed at just under $ 805 per share on Wednesday.

The sale equates to roughly 5% of the younger Musk's stake in Tesla. According to FactSet, he held 600,000 shares in October, making him the fifth largest insider shareholder. He also sold a large amount of shares last September.

Musk, a restaurateur, was previously a board member at Chipotle Mexican Grill.
