    Time to sell Curis on this news of exec compensation.. They are screwing the shareholder..

    Your viewpoint here is very negatively slanted. This is an incentive program which is actually very good management, unless you don't want the management of the company that you invest in to be motivated this year and achieve the four objectives listed, all of which would be catalysts for this stock. If all 4 members were to reach the maximum incentive, it would amount to a total of about 1 million dollars in incentive paid. That is from a company who's market cap is currently at 250 million, and that would no doubt have a much higher market cap (and therefore stoci price) if those incentives were achieved. Be mindful of the fact that the fourth criteria are the "financial objectives" of cash management and capital objectives. In other words they will have to make money to earn more, kind of like performance escalators that you might give a star athlete. Or do you not want this company to make money?
    I'm new to investing in this company, but I like what I see from it . There may be a bit of homerism at play here as I'm just north of its location (I believe its in Massachusetts if memory serves correctly) in New Hampshire, but I see a company with pretty solid fundamentals that has some novel medication approaches in a very competitive cancer research industry. It already has one new medication on the market in the US, is close to potentially having a market for that same medication in Europe, is also investigating further applications for that medication, and has a strong and active pipeline to boot. When you consider that its stock is situated in a pretty favorable spot relative to its charting history and "double-bottom," I feel this is a pretty darned good time to get into it.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
