Barry Allen, Qwest's executive vice president of operations, has exercised 1.2 million options and sold the stock for a pretax profit of $6 million, according to a federal regulatory filing Tuesday.

Allen becomes the fourth Qwest executive to exercise large chunks of options in the past week.  Altogether the four, including CEO Dick Notebaert, have netted a pretax profit of nearly $50 million.
