When will people realize that stock options are not incentives, but a way to rip off small investors. If you are not doing your job you get fired that is an incentive. Another incentive is if you do a good job you get a raise.
The sole and only purpose for stock options is to take and steal from small shareholders that have no say in the company. to prevent them from becoming true owners. all the small shareholders are is cash cow for or the option recipients.
The true value of aapl is about $1. As no one has made any money in this stock over 15 years.
gosh, I guess all of us option buyers/sellers/spreaders must be crooks then, and all of us that work for a pittance but get options in return for good performance must be crooks...hmmm. Will you always work at a 7-11 all your life and live under a bridge or will you eventually understand US economics?
