Here is advice on how to improve your wonderful company. First, eliminate all stock options, all stock options are ownership theft. Even if 99 percent of stockholders vote for them, the 1 percent that do not, do not have the right of their property being taken away. Second, it is impossible to distribute options fairly. 3rd, employees can use their salary to buy stock. 4th, you can tie executive pay to revenues per share much more reasonable than ripping off shareholders.
The 2nd is spend a large percentage of your earnings on buybacks. Try to knock out 5 percent of shares outstanding per year. You will create an impression of sustainablity, the same impression your sunpower ownership represents.
Good luck, and hope you work for the shareholders and not yourselves.

Homes built with 2000 square feet of sunpower modules, will produce 150 Kw-Hr of electricty a day. That is an excess of power for all your energy needs. heating-transportation-home use.
A balanced budget is similar to a stock with constant or dropping shares outstanding. All stocks that increase shares outstanding every year are junk stocks, or pure fraud and theft on the stockholder.
I looked at this stock this stock it is at an anything can happen stage. It's p/sales is high its revenue growth has been good. But, last quarter had a drop. 62 percent annual gain is nothing to sneeze at. Shares outstanding seem to be rising. As for Motley Fool, there information is meaningless. look at the newswire quarterly and annual reports.
