    Stop dilution by management

    After reading the replies to my post the picture arises as if the aspect of dilution is not as serious as described. Up till now the dilutive effect has been 45%of earnings per share!!! That is massive. Sure margins have somewhat declined but revenues have grown faster. The technology is in recent years OK and WFC has potential if they get the technique without glitches. BUT the fact remains that if Hong had a decent salary and bonus in line with decent compensation package nobody would complain. Imagine next year earnings 1,20 plus 45% = 1.74. (which by the way would have been much higher if this dilution scheme had not been effectuated in the past years). Compare P/E and turnover and Marketcap to eg a newcomer as Atheros. Calculate for yourself and start to realize that the dilution is a real big problem for shareholders. No it is not bashing, it is unfortunately the harsh reality. Companies like microsoft and Apple are also affected by dilution but not at a 45% rate as OVTI. I can do nothing about it but some seriously big shareholders CAN and SHOULD.realize we could have had a multibagger but instead we are the turkeys for Christmas.Now this last line is an open door to scoring points. Let the laughter begin.
