This thing will really tank if he was to resign. Unlike some companies that get a POP when a CEO in trouble resigns... he's still loved by the investment community for UNH's past performance...cheating on option dates aside. The pain will continue until this is resolved.
You're right he did something really wrong. He brought the stock price up 750% during his tenure and he created incredible growth in his company and he got rewarded for it. What a terrible terrible CEO. I wish he could've been more like Ken Lay and screwed the shareholders instead of making them rich.
Oh good Grief Mappleby285! The bastard picked and choosed his options and back dated them to their lowest!. was anyother share holder allowed to do that? HELL NO! Give these share holders a flippin break! I say lets lynch the MF'r!
