The top three guy make about $800k in salary. You almost can't live on that in silicon valley. The stock sales are pre agranged and automatic and augment their salaries. They hold $millions in stock and future options. It is sort of refreshing to me that these guys have generated over $300 million in shareholder cash and found the self control to not "tap the piggy bank" for themselves. I hope they do something with the cash to piss off the shorts....like a special (or regular) diviend. A 2% regular dividend would really stabilize the share price....Look at MCHP...the company is way overpriced, but their 2.5% dividend has kept the shorts in their holes. How many semiconductor guys EVER pay money directly to shareholders?
